    Hey there,

    I am hoping someone might know of a place in Northern California that I can get my birds slaughtered and processed. I am currently in Pittsburg, CA and the city ordinance does not allow for the slaughter of any livestock (chickens included) so I need to find a place to have the whole deed done for me. Just moved here from Alaska where you just do what needs doing with your "urban" flock and the city doesn't interfere unless you border on animal cruelty or become a serious nuisance to your neighbors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Riella Farms in Manteca did mine for me a year and a half ago - just call and schedule the drop off, then go hang out somewhere for an hour and come back with coolers and ice.

    I believe there's also a place in Sacramento, which may or may not be closer.

    Awesome! Thanks so much! I have been having a hard time doing internet and yellow page searches. I have no idea why it is so hard for the major search engines to bring up websites like the one you linked. But I greatly appreciate your referral. :)

    [​IMG] THANKS!
