Hi, Some of you know my chickens are at a school. We had 2 Cornish X chickens donated. The rooster really bullied the RIRs. I think I have at least 2 if not 3 (out of 4, egads) roosters in the RIRs, soooooo, last night I culled the Cornish X rooster. He was so heavy that he could hardly walk any more. The hen is not as heavy and takes the heat much better then he did. I estimate that she was hatched in April. My question is, do I have to cull her, or can I keep her for eggs? I don't care if she is a good layer or not, she has a real sweet disposition. With the roo, it was a little bit like put him out of his misery. Only a few students (who are children of employees) know about the white chicken, so the majority of the children won't be upset. Is it a misery for these birds to be so heavy?
