    Now they are just a month old but do I really really have to kill them?? I dont want to if I dont have to. I know that they don't lay alot of eggs, but it would break my daughters heart if they were to all of sudden disappear when they got a little older.. Now are they prone to heart attacks and leg problems like the cornish x's ?? I hope not.. any ideas or suggestions. didnt buy them to eat in the first place

    No way! Keep them. I had them before and I loved their shapes. I would love to have a few again. Just kill your unwanted males later on. Heck.......use them for a breeding project if you have the room. I love those heavy little things.
