I have a problem with the life cycle of my flock. I bought them as dual purpose birds, expecting them to lay for a while and then become delicious soup. They are doing fine on the first part, but I am unable to hold up my part of the bargain on the second half of my plan. Against all odds, these noisy dusty uncooperative little poo machines have become our feathery little friends. I can handle the circle of life thing. But I don't know how I can have this conversation with the rest of the family without causing trauma now that they have become attached. Any suggestions?
