KC area folks. Please spread the word!!! I'm working on putting together a bulk purchase of meat chickens for this spring. I know many folks are interested in running some birds for their personal freezer but due to cost and lack of the equipment have avoided doing so. The price per chick drops significantly when buying 100+ birds. I am starting a sign-up list to see how many we need to order (get the bulk price on small quantities)! I will be selling the chicks at cost. I have an entire processing setup available for rent. The whole setup is all portable and fits in any standard truck bed. Kill cones, scalder/burner, plucker machine, stainless steel draining tables for evisceration, and shrinking freezer bags. I rent the entire setup for $50. I know some folks would rather just purchase the bird processed and frozen. I can help with that too, but this offer is for those trying to get started or have limited space to run large numbers of birds. I may even put on a small processing class for any folks interested in that as well. If you or someone you know are interested, shoot me an email or pass it along. MidwestHomesteadSolutions@gmail.com
I have also built a portable tractor similar to the texas prepper one, but lighter weight which I will be posting a video on my Youtube channel soon. It held up great even through some 50+ mph winds this year.
I really want to help folks in the area out and enable them to put their own food on the table. I may even be working out a deal to purchase feed in bulk as well. If it all works out I will pass that savings along as well. Spring will be here before we know it and March / April is a good time to start your meat chicks. If you are interested in the rental and not the chick purchase, that's great as well.
