    hello every one! not sure if this belongs here, so if not, let me know where I should go. Due to a complaining neighbor we have to get rid of our flock of 11. Wondering if any one knows if there is place where I can bring my birds to be processed? I have done a few but to do them all is not something I am willing to do ( like them too much). Does any one know of a direction I go in as I keep running into dead ends.
    Thanks a bunch

    Bumping for you from Illinois - I don't have any help for you except this..

    Under the "Social" section of these forums are state listings. Try posting this on there - someone out here knows this!

    Best wishes and so sorry to hear about your flock loss.

    thank you! After going back and forth with the local government (ugh!) I am going to confine my girls and reduce their number. Not thrilled about it, but I am going keep 6 of my girls. Now we just have to decide who goes and who stays. It is turning out to be a very hard decision for me. I want my most productive girls, but the others are so lovely. do I keep the older ones or the younger ones? it's almost harder than sending them all.
    Oh, and I did find a local processing place. not sure if that's good news or not! If we are not doing the whole flock, then it's more manageable for us and may do it ourselves.
