    My husband and I raise free range meat birds for our own food and I am interested in raising more for profit. My interest is to raise them to full size and then sell them to a company that would butcher them. Does anyone know if there is a need for this or what the profit is or what company would buy the birds from me? We are in nc

    You may do better to go to "Raising Backyard chickens," forum scroll down the side tabs to " Meat birds," thread- they probably would be able to advise you.
