I get that train of thought. I haven't raised Cornish X or Freedom Rangers for a while but I would note those separately.In my little brain cockerel barnyard mixes that may or may not make it to the stew pot could be counted but Cornish cross are so temporary that I didn’t think they should be counted as part of the regular flock. However, I was just asking a fun question and you can count what you feel should be counted as your flock. I have a rooster who may be destined for the dinner table but I counted him for now.
They taste just like chicken.I can't even think about eating my cockerels
I know....I know....
I'm within a city limit (barely). Several years ago there was a newspaper article about me and my chickens. Apparently I had been flying under the radar. The mayor freaked out when he read the article. He immediately said they had to make me get rid of my chickens.So for the people who did the poll, I would like to know what percent of those are inside city limits?
I hope people do have more, because it means that I could get away with more. I'm in city limits.
I call silkies fake chickens - especially when talking to a friend who has them.I have lucky 13! Seems to be the right amount, wish I could have more, but want them all to be happy in their space! But 4 of them are silkies, so they don't really count, right?
