    I got an assortment of pullets from the hatchery, one of which is a gorgeous big pioneer. She is the sweetest thing! She is also so much bigger then all the others! I am just curious if anyone keeps them for eggs or do all your pioneers get sent to the freezer? I am heard many different stories. Some keep and have no problems, others wouldnt dare let them live past a certain weight. What do you all think?

    I think you should keep her because she is a beauty, maybe she will surprise you and be the best pet you ever had. Oh, maybe lay a golden egg to say thanks?! LOL:D
