I have a cornish cross named Cream that my daughter had to have. Because she is such a gentle giant I though we could let her live with my egg layers and see if she lays. We are just past the 6 month mark mow, and my RIR is trearing her up. Cream is not laying and has not shown any signs, but she keeps trying to roost in the nesting boxes. My layers are not tolerating this. She has lost most of her tail feathers and a few wing feathers. I have been covering her wounds in blue hen healer, and we were doing prettu good. Until last night that is. Now the layers have torn all but 3 of her tail feathers out and torn her tail up pretty good. Cream is easily 3 times the size of the layers but won't defend herself. I currently have no other place for her to go. If I cull her, can we eat her with the injuries she sustained or do I need to feed her to our dogs/throw the whole carcass away? I just feel like keeping her alive longer is not in her best interest anymore( her weight is starting to cause leg issues as well). I hate to lose her as she is a very sweet chicken, but I would feel better if her death resulted in some good.
