Well, we did the deed today. Our BB tom weighed out at 40# and our hen was 30# decided they were getting too big. Our hen was acting funny the last several days and I told DH something was wrong with her, better have the axe ready. I also noticed 2 soft shelled eggs in the pen the other day and 2 more this morning when the kids and I went to say good bye to her and tom. It was puzzling. My DH informed me that when they gutted her out they found 19 yolks in her. Some real small and some bigger. I'm glad we went ahead and harvested her. What was wrong with her? Is that what they call internal laying?
