I know it's hard to give up ones that you're attached to and are perfectly good chickens. I'm going through it still too. But think of the end goal. It's worth it. Yes! What's up with breeders and FB?? They are all on there, almost competing with one another. I signed up just to have some breeder connects. I do the same thing...just watch them go back and forth, picking apart each other's birds. This is so true!! I wasted a lot of time with shipped eggs. Better to just buy straight from reputable breeders.
