I ordered a mixed flock of 25 pullets (minimum order) and the fellow I was going to sell most of them to, backed out of the deal after they arrived. I only want 5 for layers, but it's difficult to choose as I like 'em all. I have 5 of each, RIR, BL, BA, EE and NH, plus 1 roo that was a packing peanut. They are 8 weeks now and probably half grown. I was thinking another 2 weeks and then process 20 for broilers, even though they're small. Do I choose the biggest to keep, the prettiest, the friendliest, one of each?? ( I know the roo will be going, and he's my favorite) This is my first time at raising chickens, so I'm not too sure what to do. Any ideas will be appreciated.
