Yeah, I didn't have a clear picture of this in my mind when we started. But my girls are 2-1/2yo and clearly done with laying as of about 2 months ago. I think in my head, we'd just keep them until they died (how long is that? I thought 10 years!). But now we have to relocate from NJ to Chicago and will be living somewhere that is not chicken-conducive. We were about to hunt up homes for our ladies, but without the benefit of eggs--not too many takers. I'm still going to look, though. I'm seriously considering having them processed. They haven't been as much like pets as I thought (and that is entirely newbie learning error in how much we should've worked with them as chicks--but it is what it is). I don't know, though... seems... I don't know. Thoughts? And if I were going to do that, what do I look for in a processing facility?
