Does anyone know who butchers chickens in eastern Iowa or Cedar Rapids specifically? I have called several lockers, but so far all the ones I've called said they don't.

It's tough to find folks that do this and it almost made me want to buy the equipment and start my own business. I live in SW Iowa (Pacific Junction, South of Omaha/Council Bluffs) and I drive about 45 minutes to Duncan Poultry in Missouri Valley. They do a great job and you can watch from the prep cages all the way to a bagged chilled bird. They also have a website at: I'm not suggesting you drive this way but I found them just by chance. I was in a local feed store and Duncan had a business card posted on the bulletin board. Good luck. Jim

There is an Amish family by the name of Yoder near Hopkinton that butchers chickens. I believe the cost is $1 per bird. If you go to the Amish grocery store near Hopkinton, they will give you a map to the Yoder farm. I don't have the information handy at this time, but if you respond to this post and request I post the information, I'll be happy to find it and post it for you.
