i have something that bothers me sooooo bad, there are several things one is people who have chickens that are mixed breed calling them mutts!!! i hate that, its a chicken people. also people who cull because its not pure blood or the colors wrong or whatever. whats wrong with letting it live its not the chicks fault that it was born that way, and who are we to judge wether they live or die because of the breeding, if this is a major problem separate your hens and roo. i have had pure bloods and mixed both and they were fine and actually the mutts as you call them were better than the pure bloods. if you have a chick that has a medical problem then thats fine, but if you can fix it, FIX IT, don't kill just because. if you have a abundance of roos try to sell or give away or whatever but don't kill them. people need to take responsibilites for what they do and stop taking out on the chicks--in order to get the perfect bird. some breeds have health issues etc because people want something in particular dont figure in the consquenses of thier actions. alot of inbreeding and such make these breeds voulrable to particular health issues. people need to start re thinking on what they are doing before new lives are brought into this world and ultimatly dying because "we" couldn't get it right.
