I rescued over 50 birds. Little did I know I was getting about 20 mini T-rex. They show no mercy and will draw blood anywhere they can reach. They are fed daily and also free range. So they are not starving. They have also been wormed twice to rule that out. They are just evil. Today my oldest let them out, and about five started chasing her and she came running in the house screaming with blood running down her leg. That was the last straw. So at approx 12-14 weeks, we started butchering the barred rocks. Needless to say they are quite tiny, and it will take at least 5 to feed two adults and 3 toddlers, maybe even more. So we butchered 4 of them and one of my 4 month old RSL roos, quite small as well. I am going to bake half and fry half and see what the next course of action is for the remainders. I think I will most likely can the rest, but if they are really tasty I will just freeze them. I felt a great deal of satisfaction as I threw the last one in a bowl of water. Partly because I know there will be no more evil roosters drawing blood on my chickens, and partly because I did it all by myself under the watchful eye of my three young daughters. They are super excited about eating the chicken for dinner!
