    Not in your area, but to keep your post active there is an awesome processor in E. Bridgewater MA that has done all my ducks and chickens... Real nice folks/ Den Bestons farm. Just picked up 4 of my Muscovies last week...

    They have a sort of "menu" to do birds. All I know is the prices for chickens and ducks. Chickens are $3 to kill and pluck, and another $2 to gut and clean. Ducks are $7 to kill/pluck and 10 for the deluxe treatment. They do Turkeys etc all the way up to full grown steers and cows.
