    We're looking at adding some meat birds to our laying crew and wondered if anyone knew of poultry processing places near the Des Moines area in Iowa. I'm not opposed to doing this myself, but my wife has images of horror films in her head that I have found challenging to replace :) If you have any places locally let me know. We're looking at getting somewhere between 20-30 cornish x

    Thank, I've seen these before, but most are either a couple hours away or only commercial processors that have hundreds of birds minimum. Didn't know if anyone had used a place that was within reasonable distance from Des Moines
