    I want to teach my scouts how to kill, pluck, dress and cook a chicken. I need to purchase 3 of them before our campout this Friday evening. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might go to purchase them? I tried the local chicken processing plant and they turned me down cold and could give me no clue where to go. I am in Chattanooga, TN and the campout will be in Cohutta, Whitfield Co, GA Many thanks!

    what about posting an ad at your local feed store or inquire with the sales staff at the store

    I'd go on Craigslist and look for people wanting to get rid of excess roosters - probably get them free or cheaper than pullets.

    agreed..why would you want to butcher pullets..scouting is about teaching the kids life skills and killing the pullets over a rooster isn't teaching them well...pullets left alive feed you every day a pullet for dinner feeds you once...that's where roosters come in [​IMG]
