Serving small flocks has always been our challenge. With backyard poultry exploding in America, the need is even greater. Our answer is the Featherman Rental Program. Through our web page, https://www.feathermanequipment.com/equipment-locator/, equipment owners and non-equipment owners hook up to their mutual benefit. Newbies and small flocks have access to processing equipment and equipment owners have another income stream.
The success of this program shows in the numbers. We rent our equipment out an average of 30 times per year. Some have rented 40 and 50 times, paying for the equipment in one year and needing multiple sets! The hottest rental area is the Pacific Northwest. Check out this Mother Earth News blogpost, http://www.motherearthnews.com/homesteading-and-livestock/renting-poultry-processing-equipment-zbwz1507zlde.aspx about it.
If you own any processing equipment and are not yet listed, send us your info (firstname.lastname@example.org) to add another income stream to your operation and be of service to the smaller operators.
