Last year I processed 25 Cornish X's, I had a person from an oddities shop buy all the heads. Weird, I know. This year they aren't buying, is there something to do with the heads? Or best to just scrap them?
Kind of an odd request. I'm looking for a printable flyer that our poultry club can use at an informative booth this weekend at the feed store. Needs to be easy and quick to look at. 2 sided is ok. I have one that is just a few paragraphs but I think it won't keep peoples attention as it just...
