The type of license and facility needed depend on the amount of rabbits and poultry you want to process in a year and/or their dollar value. At any level, you will need a Food Establishment License from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

You can also contact MDARD, http://www.michigan.gov/mdard/0,4610,7-125-2762---,00.html, and ask to be put in contact with your area inspector for more assistance.
