My cornish X rescues have had 13 weeks of the good life, 13 weeks of life that they wouldn't have had otherwise. They've foraged, they enjoyed the sushine and fresh air, dustbathing and watermelon treats. Still, I can't keep 10 extra cockerels. I have two favorites that I'd like to keep, Ollie and Gimpy, but my little turken roo is already trying to beat the snot out of them every time he gets the chance and they just stand there and take it. I can only imagine what would happen to them against my adult rooster, Thor. I held Gimpy on my lap for a long time yesterday evening and then gave him a piece of watermelon all to himself. This evening my DH is going to take them to the other end of the farm and cull them. I'll still have the 8 meatie pullets, but it's the cockerels that have had the best personalities.
