Do you ever just feel like you should get a ton of chickens due to survival of the fittest? I am feeling that way... To the point where I feel like I am already tired of emotionally investing in chickens that are pray- so once they get to be full sized- they do not seem to be so fragile and so targeted. Then I will invest. But I am feeling a bunch of chickens in the spring and just letting nature happen!!! My husband says this is why chickens reproduce so quick- they are easy pray, not that intelligent and so they have to mate and have babies so fast as to keep up with the survival of the fittest!
