Minnie when we ask for hens of course there is less demand for the baby Roos. Your honesty and the way you told us about male chicks puts it in a different light. I understand not bringing them up with feed costs as they are and dealing with a volume of chickens that you have. I think also that working with those Asian folks is a great thing, The lawn looks greener these last couple days but cold and snow for Monday and Friday?! Nooooooo!!!!! I was looking at my Roos feet and I think he may have broken a middle toe. Looks a little swollen and bent. My buckeye hen also had a nail and small portion of her toe shrivel blacken and fall off. Any body else deal with winter toe breaks and loss of toes. Or do I have to lower those roosts even more?!
