    Your department of agriculture should be able to help you. I am in Illinois and they were very helpful and it was surprisingly easy to get set up for meat sales.

    How is your ''burger'' project coming along or did they let her hang awhile?

    Mike,

    I just picked her up yesterday. I have already sold some via the internet to local people and the gas station lady. I will be sending out flyers to my previous customers and putting an ad in the paper soon.

    I'll let you know how it goes. If I don't sell it in a month, I'll be giving it away to make room for chickens!
