I really want to get 25 or 50 meat chickens this Fall and process them myself. But, truth be told... I don't really have any knowledge on how to do this, just the desire to do it. I have never killed anything in my life and although I think it would be difficult, I really believe that I can do it for all the benefits to the animals as well as my family. I just don't even know where to begin. What type of chickens would I choose? Cornish? How do you feed them? Do they have to be wormed like a laying hen? How do I know they are healthy? Is there a book to read? Should I offer to help someone in my area that is slaughtering their flock to learn?
