    Thank you for warm welcome. :) And those links. So far I am but they are just little things. Not quite sure on age. Their wing feathers are just coming in. And a few tail feathers too. Is there an age that is too old to eat a chicken? When I moved into my new place I inherited some old chickens that do the lay. The previous owner says she had them like 8 years or something.

    I think those are way too old for eating - still they might make a decent stew

    G’Day from down under stormrobin [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
