Kind of half way here. I will raise meat birds and dual purpose birds specifically for the table. I am a softie though and a hen that lays for several years probably would go out to the mutt flock. or retirement flock. I tend to adopt ones that need a home so no expectations from them.
I am not retired yet but will soon and my paradigm may shift when I am on a fixed income.
Past poultry: Buff Brhama, EE, Barred rock, Wellsummer,
Bantam mixes, Araucana, Turkeys, & Guinea Fowl.
Future poultry: Guinea Fowl, Sumatra, Wellsummer, Muscovy
