I could not kill my chickens. I might be able to surrender chickens to some friends if they wanted to butcher them and eat them. I also probably couldn't eat my own chickens. Our old chickens good to eat? Like five-year-old ones?
I have just been surprised by the reaction I have gotten. I never claimed to be a farmer. How do other people handle this? I know many just call their flock at certain ages. But are there many people who plan to do what I do and keep them even past their prime Edlane years?
