Hi everyone! I have a quick question about eating your backyard chooks. My OH is interested in using our excess roosters as table birds as we're not happy with the price and quality of the chooks in the shop. The only thing is - we don't have a plucker and it takes ages to pluck a bird (plus I don't wanna do it! I don't eat 'em either!) - does anyone know of a poultry abbatoir that would do it for you? Also would be interested to know if anyone else eats their own chooks and what sort of chooks - we have light sussex. Ok, so that wasn't so quick! Sorry! Thanks in advance!
there is a place in Wangara called prestige poultry I think it costs bot $3 or $4 per bird
Chicken Obsessed Nana who keeps Salmon Faverolles, Gold, Silver, and Blue Laced and Buff and white Columbian Wyandottes, Speckled Sussex, Silkies, Pekins, Frizzles, Araucanas, D'Uccles, Pilgrim Geese, Koi in winebarrels, and 2 gorgeous grand kids on most weekends lakelandspoultry.webs.com/
Thankyou! I am a bit south of the river though - a bit past Byford - Judes if you are going to ring and find out a minimum nuber that would be great! Don't really want to travel NOR for 1 bird! Thanks for your help!
Baldivis Poultry Processors (I think that is what they are called) you can take birds there but they are only opened in the latter part of the year. I did ring them earlier in the year but cant remeber the exact opening times. Sorry!!
Thanks horses7! That is MUCH closer to me! It's not the same place as WA poultry supplies is it? I know that's in Baldivis. Have you ever used them to process your own birds? Do you have a vauge idea of the price? Sorry about all the questions! Thanks!
Ok, I rang them, they are indeed Baldivis Poultry Processors and they do process private birds! They are happy to do any type of poultry, from chooks, ducks, turkeys, etc and charge $5 per bird up to 3kg (dressed weight) - a little extra for bigger. There is no minimun number, but you have to have them there before 9am - pickup after 2pm on Wednesdays - oh and they ask that you ring first. So thankyou for that! It was just what I was after and I hope this helps others too! Cheers!
