    I have 12 2yo chickens that I am going to get processed. What should I do with the chicken meat after they are done? I do not want to eat them, so what should I do? Is anybody interested in buying them?

    Thanks

    Why are you processing them if you don't want to eat the meat? Just curious. You can sell your birds on craigslist.

    maybe cook them for your dogs? or give them away, some do not understand these were pets, ours are so we will not be eating them, but do want the eggs. or as stated you could sell them [​IMG]

    You can always feed it to dogs and stuff if you don't want to eat it.

    I have a friend on a farm who when he "feels" his hen is done laying, breaks their neck and gives them feathers and all to his pigs. Makes ya worry about eatin' bacon doesn't it?
