Chicken Processing near Canberra?

By FiSyd - 24 February 2013 23

Does anyone know if there is an abattoir near Canberra where I could have my chickens processed so they could legally be sold?

Cheers.

As in you give me money, I give you a chicken (or part thereof).

Giving someone a chicken in return for AUD. Is this a concept you are not familiar with?

You could ask the organic butcher at Griffith Shops for a lead? There’s an abattoir in Goulburn – but I suspect there’s a different skill set and setup needed for chickens. If your enterprise is a cottage industry, you could just approach any butcher in Canberra and hire their butchering space of a Sunday, and do it yourself.

The only chicken processing place I know of around here is Young’s Chickens in Balydon Road, Queanbeyan. A reasonably large sized outfit, but not sure if they will process other people’s chickens.

I used to work in a friends chicken abattoir and I reckon that the Belconnen facility wouldn’t take cointract birds. Have a look on the Rotary Farmers Market website. Each of the chicken places has a contact number so you could give them a call.

How many do you have?

If you are planning a meat substitution racket, the size of the drumsticks will be a dead giveaway.

Do a bit of DIY action it’s been happening for years. It’s only a chook after all

I’ve heard of a goose that laid golden eggs, but not a chook with a cointract.

There is a place on the outskirts of Belconnen that deals with the extermination of chickens, Poultrywitz.

There is a sign on the front that reads: Welcome to Inghams “Ein Wok machen Sie gebratene”.

A scary, scary, tasty place.
