Well, our chickens went off today to be processed. It was kind of sad to see them in the cages after them roaming our yard and front patio yesterday. I told my DH last night that I would get up this morning and help round them up since I knew which hens were staying because they were getting closer to laying eggs. Well, he didn't wake me up, and stupid man put alot of the hens that were almost ready to lay in the cages. So, I got up in time to go out and see which ones he had kept, and I freaked cause they were the ones that weren't ready, only 2 hens that he kept had the bright red combs. Doesn't he listen to me after the past few weeks saying the ones with the red combs are staying So, I made him open up the cages and took out the few that were near the top and switched them for the ones with the pink combs, he wasn't happy!!! He had also put "Baby" the runt in with the ones to go as well as one that my kids have named that we stressed weren't to go. It made me so mad!!! His excuse...."how was I to know???" Like we told him last night, DUH. If he had waken me up this morning it would have saved some time. Anyhow, I think I got all the hens that were supposed to stay. It's kinda a sad day though.
