    18 week old Dominique pullet that was the runt of hatch and I had planned to cull her anyway. She seems to be eating ok but the neck issue is getting worse. Go ahead and kill her now or wait a couple more weeks? She is pretty scrawny but would still make a batch of chicken and dumplings.

    I can't imagine that it would cause her not to be fit to eat but if anybody thinks different I would like to hear why.
