    I have had chickens for years but only for eggs. Would like to try and raise meat chickens for my family. Processing them myself is not going to happen. Does anyone know of a processor in GA or North Florida?

    There are ppl you can talk to about at the Havana Farm Swap on the 26th at Stone's. Or, you may ght be able to find someone willing to help by searching for someone that rents out plucking machines... not sure where they are, but I know they're out there.
    My husband does ours.
    You might try Johnson or Johnston's Meats.

    Just wanted to say that the people at Johnston's are exceptionally nice. I've never had them process anything for me (yet, though we have a couple surprise roosters that they might be seeing, if they process birds), but we used to shop there every now and then when we lived in Tally. All very polite, good folks with pretty decent prices.
