Philosophy: No slackers! Back two monthes ago I got chicken tags and tagged all of my Chickens and Ducks. And over the last two monthes I have kept excellent records on their hardiness, egglaying, and size. And tommorow is the cull day. Only one hen wont make it. She wasnt hardy, didnt lay, and wasnt big enough to breed. Out of the 17 hens she is the only one never been caught on the nest nor with a moist cloaca, hers was very very dry. This all fits in with being more Self Sufficient. Making them earn their way in. She will be slow cooked chicken for Sunday's supper.
