I have hens that are going to be 2 in March and I have new hens that lay and will be 1 in march soo I want to know if I should put the 2yr olds in the freezer?? They are molting now and I have like 40 ish chickens , I feel really guilty about doing it but we need to scale back the feed bill and I want more chicks in the spring. Butttt I have a lot of people wanting eggs now soo Should I keep the originals still various breeds like EE's 4 , BO 4, Australorps 3. I am curious if their rate of laying will be like 1 egg every other day or if it will be like once a week. Arrggg I feel so confused but I know I can do it I have gotten roo's in the freezer but my hens are different. anyone had the same situation please tell me what you did.
