Cant help with location but how many did you start with and what are you doing with them? If you're not processing them who is? Will they help with a second batch?

Your best bet is to ask local independent butchers and see if they will take them for you.

Today's *cost-effective* poultry processing by a butcher/processor is surely about volume (and mechanisation).  There was a time when chicken was more expensive to buy than beef - as many here will recall - but that was before chicken butchering/processing "factories" came into being !  If one needs (and can find) a local butcher who is prepared to process a relatively small number of birds, the resulting carcasses are not going to be the cheapest means of filling the freezer I would suggest !!
