    I have weekly hatches going for my lavender orp project and am culling all chicks that hatch black. They are project birds, so could be straight black or split black. Type is unknown as these are our first offspring from these breeding pens, so I will consider them pet quality at this time, since I cannot assess them yet.

    Chicks are black in color and straight run (unsexed), from brown egg layers. $2 each

    I have 14 ready to go from our 12/29 hatch. Pickup only in Slatington PA 18080.

    Why are you culling the black ones? Can't you have someone take them off your hands for free? Instead of killing them?

    Culling does not always mean killing. It can mean selecting to remove from breeding. I am selling them to hopefully be good layers for someone else.
