    Not much to report- but I butchered 4 boys today. For anyone out there needing to get rid of the boys, just do it.

    21 weeks old. They were really starting to bother my layers, I should have done it quite some time ago. Not nice work, but glad it is done!

    I struggled with this my first time around. I was able to rehome most but I kept one around that should have been eaten. He became very agressive. A year later he turned out to be the best tacos ever!

    The next time....
    As soon as they started in on the hens, into the freezer.

    Yes, just do it.
