So, I have a backyard flock that, for all intensive purposes, was for some yummy at home free run eggs. However, 15 of my birds turned out to be roosters!! I've tried to get rid of them but after all the money I've put into feeding and raising them the only way I'll recoup my cost is to slaughter them and eat them. They are RIR and orpingtons. I've heard they are dual purpose birds, but anyone have any experience with these birds as eating birds? Will it be worth my time to slaughter them all for dinner?? Also, my second question has to do with blackhead. I've had some yellowish/mustardy, foamy diarrhea around. I've freaked myself right out thinking they have something terrible, but there is no blood, non of my birds are lethargic and they are all running around eating and drinking just fine (the roosters are being real dicks and accosting my poor hens). I was thinking maybe they are either stressed out, it's something they are eating (we throw our no-good garden veges in their coop) or perhaps it's just ceceal poop? Anyways if it is blackhead, are these chickens edible or do I need to medicate them first? I'm super new to chickens and have a ton to learn so sorry for the ramble. Thanks!
