If you are raising chickens, turkeys or other poultry for meat and lack easy access to a humane, local slaughterhouse, this guide shows you how to put together a slaughtering and processing unit that will accommodate any type of poultry and can be moved from farm to farm. These units can be funded, built and used by a community of small farmers, or you can develop one by yourself and use it as part of a business.
