I am so torn. I have 4 roos and only need 2. None are mean like the red roo that I processed last year. He spurred me one time too many and that made it easy. But these guys are nice. And they have the most gorgeous feathers. Until I get out to the pen I can say that I will keep the senoir roo (Long John Silver) and the youngest (Moose) because he is a brown silver. These are Olive Eggers of Marans/Ameraucana breeding. But Blue beard has a gorgeous mottled beard. And Yellow Legs have so much red bleeding through his shoulders it looks like a sunset. And I worry that "dissappearing" them from the flock might be upsetting to the rest. Everyone saw me grab up Rufus when he attacked me that last time and carry him away to the house from which he never resurfaced. But they also knew he deserved it because he had been jumping me for months. Even Long John would beat him up when Rufus would jump me.
They sound gorgeous! I'd be tempted to just keep them anyway regardless of numbers, let them breed and then maybe eat them later :p One thing you can do is what I'm trying right now: preserve the skin with its feathers intact and then make something with it after. At least you'll still get to enjoy the beauty of their feathers and less of the bird will have gone to waste
