Not sure if I'm posting in the right place, if not, please let me know. Anyway, when I bought chickens last spring my intentions were to have laying hens and then butcher when thier time is up. My DD who is 11 is having an emotional time with this. I'm sure there are others that has dealt with this situation before. I need advise on what to do or tell her. I want this to be a positive solution. Was planning on getting meat chickens but put that on hold. My DD went from a hunter to an animal lover and this is getting very frustrating for me. At least she will still eat wild game. What do I do? Remeber I want this to be a positive for both of us.
