So I jumped into raising chickens this summer with full force. I got 10 somewhat older chicks to raise and then decided I really did want the chick phase and ordered 35 chicks. I had the thought that any roosters we would eat and now that it is fall and time to kill said roosters I am having second thoughts. My favorite chicken is the head rooster- he keeps his flock in line, he isn't too bad to look at even though he is a turken and he is I wouldn't say nice but he is not mean. I have 5 roosters in that bunch and lately when I look at them I think of how pretty they are and how nice their babies would look. Mind you I have yet to see an egg out of the hens but I swear they should be laying any day!!! I know in my head we should be packing these boys up for the freezer but I keep going to war with myself on it. The babies are still to little- they would make half a drumstick right now so I will have to cross that bridge when it comes but the older ones are at the crossing road right now. How do you choose who goes to the freezer? And how do you stick with the plan?
