I have had two broody hens over the last few months. I hatched four with my first, and it turns out three are cockerels (12 weeks old). My second hatch was with six, and at least two are cockerels that I can tell right now (only 4 weeks old). My question is: what do you do with the cockerels? I have tried and tried to find homes, but I only found one a home. I have at least four more. I have put up ads for free Easter Egger cockerels, but I have had no response. If I cannot find them homes, I am trying to wrap my head around using them for meat. When I first started with chickens a year ago, I didn't think I'd have a problem, but I have grown very attached to my flock of 20. They are my pets. How did you get over this internal fight to get to using them for meat? I want to be able to, but is it possible? What was your experience? Also, is Easter Egger meat any good? At what age should I process should I find the courage?
