My 4 extra roos are being culled in 3 weeks unless there are any takers in new hampshire! My ladies are just not liking the abuse and I can only wack those naughty boys so many times a day. My poor little bantum usually stays in the run happy as a clam but i saw her out in the biting wind last week with a big chunk of feathers ripped out of her backside and bleeding-then witnessed a roo being a big potty head later that day! I saw about 20 large white feathers on my deck yesturday and it was because my Frita took a beating from a nasty wasty boy and now she is so bare it makes me sad. My DH saw this as it was happening and he chased him off. I have the boys quarantined and the kids know why but don't know about the culling. We go on vaca and my FIL & BI are going to do the "flock reduction" for us. I feel guilty but know it's for the best. I got rid of them twice but wound up with them again. I feel stupid......they're just chickens right???
