Rooster processing

I saw a previous thread about this which didn't get a successful response, but I'm going to try again. I am in the Wairarapa and have an overflow of roosters at the moment - having huge ratio of roosters to hens in my new chicks. I need to get rid of the majority of the adults that I already have. I am an ex-vegetarian and there is NO way I can despatch them myself - yes, I am a total coward. Is there anyone in the Wairarapa who would do this and then process them for meat? Here's hoping ....

I know no one in your area, but if you want them gone, your best bet would be to talk to local Indian community - lots of Indian people like to do their own. Up here i got one person that i call and he out the next day taking all the roosters i do not want.

I have a friend who had the same problem last year, she advertised on TM at $1 each and got a really good response, local lady will now come along and take any extra roosters she has... :-)

Agree. Someone on the kapiti coast buys them to eat. Someone in the Wairarapa was processing them but I don't know if they are still doing it.
