    Im wishing you lots of luck on your pick! I dont think I could pick from mine to get rid of but if I had too Id pick my most favorite ones to keep. Im sure someone else might be more helpful to you then I just was.

    If I had to cull a bird I would know exactly which one, lol. I have one particular that is not very friendly and she would be the first to go. After that I would have a harder time. I think I would just try and figure out which characteristics are most important to me (egg production, egg color, feather coloring, friendliness, etc.), and decide which ones best fit the bill. Good luck!

    Wow, that might be really hard. I have my favorites in my flock but I once had to re-home a very aggressive hen. So I think I would keep the friendliest and the ones that got along well together.
