Hi All,

Could you give me a contact for someone who will kill and dress chickens?  Thank you!

How many chickens? I have done some in the past and if you are up for a DIY experience there are some great videos out there like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_S3P0eU0lE&feature=relmfu

I would be happy to help you with the first couple if you would like. I have also heard there is a chicken CO-OP that has some equipment that you can rent. 

I realize that you are requesting someone to do the process I am just wanting to offer another option... Good luck! 

There's a fellow named Brett up in Lynden who does this for around $3 per bird.  It's a humane process - I stayed to watch the first time.  They give you the birds back in bag ready for the freezer.

Worthwhile to do it yourself (or to watch) - at least the first time - to really 'get' what you're doing when you  grow your own and eat meat. It raised my appreciation and gratitude for the birds I'm eating and my understanding of my place in the food chain.  But after that, if you have the funds to pay someone else, it is a time-saver to have them do it.  Contact me if you want his number.

Thank you guys for your replies!  I have friends with chickens who will be very happy to get this information.

Alicia, yes I'd love to have his number. Thanks!
