Hi, I have a question. I was told by a neighbor that the old man who used to live at our house would order chicks by mail in early spring, raise them until they laid eggs awhile (maybe fall into winter) then kill and eat them. I know for a fact that he used to keep the birds mentioned in the subject line. So my question is: do they make good eating birds? Or do you think he may have kept two separate flocks - one as meat birds and one as egg layers? I am just curious as to the history of our coop and our home.
