    Quote:Where are you located? Regulations differ from state to state. What I would recommend is to call your state Ag dept or someone from a local extension office if you have one.

    no idea about the states but in the EU the law is that you can kill your own birds to feed yourself and your family. If you want to sell the birds you need a slaughtermans license and a licensed property in which the birds are slaughtered.
