They are all DP and not even a year old and they have been laying all winter with added light in coop. Today we only got 7 eggs from 14 hens. My DH asked " why they all can't lay everyday?"
I laughed and told him - wait till Fall when they all molt and stop laying all together for a couple months. So - His GRAND IDEA is that we should butcher them when they have pulled all their own feathers out. He really hated plucking the few meat birds and roos last Fall.
I told him I didn't think the meat was as good because of moulting but maybe he's right??? I'm laughing but, please tell me who's right? I apologize if I should have put this in another forum but I thought Meat Birds ETC was the right place. Please help me tell him he's wrong LOL
