    Due to the expense of buying the equipment......are there any butchers within 100 miles of Salisbury, Md?

    I don't live in Md. but I bought a quick pluck on line for 60.00 then all you need is 2 plastic 55 gal drums which are 10.00 a piece here if that helps most places wont process chickens

    How many are you going to process? If it's just a few, all you really need is a sharp knife, a pot big enough to swish a bird in, and an ice chest or tub of slush to chill the carcass.

    I butchered for 30 years. As Allyn stated that's all you need. No expensive equipment but a second person really helps
