As some of you guys have been following, I rescued Ethel (well, it was supposed to be temporary) a few months ago. She is a meat bird that was saved from being eaten, the owner decided he was going to keep her, and there was a move involved, now she is with me until....? I am concerned because she is so fat she can hardly get around. She waddles around, and when I weighed her this morning, she is now 8.1 lbs. I don't mind taking care of the freeloader, but now I have just found out she is eating everyone's eggs! I know this time of year production slows down, but last nite we caught her in the act, and this is unacceptable! What is her fate? I know nothing about meaties, she came from some organic farm in upstate NY. Does she NEED to be eaten? Will she live thru the winter? Or will she explode? Help! I really don't know what to do with her!
