This may seem odd to many of you it does to me, at times. My husband is a supervisor at a poultry kill facility, they do chickens. We have plenty of chicken anytime I'd like some but I much prefer the thought of meat raised at home, since I know how it was cared for, what it was given and how it lived. We have several hens past laying age and a few roosters that are a few too many. I want to process them. He does not. He's extremely uncomfortable with killing our "pet" chickens. I've even tried to explain to him that winter is coming on, many of these girls are old and I am the one buying the feed for these "useless" chickens. I don't quite understand where he is getting this mentality, considering that he supervises the death of about 100K chickens a day! I've only ever been able to convince him to kill one chicken, a mean rooster. We've raised hogs and killed them, he's an avid hunter, I just don't know how to break through the mentality. He says "Sell them!" to which I reply, "Who wants an old hen who might lay 2 eggs a year?"
