    Dang It - I have become attatched to my Cornish X Meaties... My dad gave them back to me about a week ago when he couldn't bring himself to kill them. When they came I was all Ill give them 2 to 3 more weeks then they will go in the freezer! I never would have thought they would love me [​IMG]...

    They free range away from my egg layers during the day and when they hear the gate open and see me they come running.. They are so chunky its the cutest thing to see them running their hearts out across the yard (yea I know they love me for my food).. I have had to euthanize many critters, even some chicken from Tyson I raised for a feed class in college, but these two have gotten to me..

    Look at them come running... BTW they are named Breakfast & Dinner per my husband [​IMG]

    Quote:We processed a rooster last month, one that I had cared for for a year believing it was a hen. When he suddenly decided at about a year old to grow wattles and crow...he had to go. I didn't want to do it, but my dh did not either. Finally one morning he woke up and said today was the day. I was relieved! lol
