    Anyone know of a processor in northern TC metro area. We got 6 extra males with our order. We do not intend to keep them nor know of anyone who wants them. We are find with eating them, but not quite up to processing them ourselves.

    Thanks

    I am in Minnesota, southern metro. I use a processor in Dennison, MN. That is south of the cites, 15 miles south of Hampton. They are reasonable but probably a drive for you. I think I remember hearing of one in Becker area???, but I am not positive. There was a post at one time that had a list of processors in different states.

    Does anyone still have that website?

    Do you know how much they charge in Dennison for chickens?

    I talked to them a few months back and they are the only people I know of south of the metro who will process goats.

    Honestly though, for 6 chickens, I'd just try to find someone in your area in 4H who will do it for you.

    I usually bring in 50+ birds to process and they charge me $2 a bird. I do not know if they charge more for less amounts of birds.

    I have used them few times now and have been very satisfied with the service.
