This was a member posting about losing their hens and hatching from pullets, but within just a generation or two noticed the birds weren't as big or laying eggs the same size.
I want to talk about the weights of my hona eggs and whether they're close enough to the right size, or if it's unethical to sell chicks from pullet eggs with the knowledge that they won't grow to the (nonexistent) standard.
I had to go find it.
I think its ok to sell them! why on earth not! just let them know the size eggs they hatched from and the age of the hens.
people are such hypocrites, communication is key, if you can communicate things will be fine.
Its when there is lack of communication and understanding when things go awry.
Am I wrecking the breed by selling birds who will lay smaller than standard eggs?
I haven't read anywhere that hatching from pullets equals birds that will lay smaller than normal eggs for the rest of their life.
