Ok, so my husband let me get our 4 pullets for eggs. What we kind of didn't discuss is that after a year or two, egg production goes down. Now if we had a big property, it wouldn't matter much. Just get a few more chickens! But we live in a tiny residential community. No can do. My friends with chickens sell them after a year or two. (I guess presumably for meat.) I don't think there's anything wrong with that... but I can't do it! Even though I'm only attached to two of the chickens, I couldn't get rid of any of them. I'd just feel terribly guilty!! So that leaves me with chickens who live a good long spoiled life... but very few eggs. My husband rolls his eyes. He thinks I should be more realistic. But I can't do it. sigh. Anyone else in this situation? I WISH I LIVED ON A FARM!!
