Roosters for Sale$5.

So the unreliable butcher has done it again and cancelled my kill date.  I have some lovely big roosters of these breeds:

White Chantecler
Buckeye

And these bantam roosters:

Golden Sebright and
White Plymouth Rock.

all hatched spring 2017

I'm going to Williams Lake next week and Prince George in mid September. I'd bring anyone interested a rooster for $5 just to get my numbers down.  I hate butchering!

I also have some of last year's turkey toms  - $10 each - Beltsville Small White turkeys, again the butcher made then cancelled the kill date last minute.

Clearly I need to either stop hatching or find another butcher.  Has anyone used the facility in Quesnel?

I think you should find another butcher, regardless. ;-)

Re: Roosters for Sale$5.

darn!  That's a real kick in the pants!  I have no advice other than to commiserate with you on the unreliability if this guy.  But sure am glad you don't raise those eating machines, Cornish Giants!

Re: Roosters for Sale$5.

Nearest poultry butcher is in Quesnel, more than four hours away.  But yes, no point relying on the local abattoir.   No more hatching for me!

Re: Roosters for Sale$5.

We have switched to processing our own as the costs of the gov't approved facilities are too high and they only want white birds.  As a result we do not sell  meat poultry now.  We may hire a mobile processor, but then the poultry is still only for personal consumption as we do not have an approved docking station.

HG, we could help you cut down on your hatching next year.  We bought 6 poults this spring.  One died soon after arriving here which left 5.  All 5 have grown into nice toms which leaves us looking for 2 unrelated hens before next spring.  We don't have room at present for additions until after some toms and roosters have moved into the freezer.

Re: Roosters for Sale$5.

I have a few poults of undetermined sex, I am sure some must be hens. I'll let you know Rosewood.  I have 18 adult toms and 3 adult females.  Crazy.

We had one of last year's butchered roosters last night - it was fantastic.

Re: Roosters for Sale$5.

Fall fair weekend here so we have cooked up two turkeys for those staying at the fair grounds and those staying home-prearranged meals.  The undetermined part is scary because those that fall under that description turn into males here.
