My poor girls, the original three, have been having so-so laying habits the past month. I know it's not the weather since it had been decently warm and I spoil them with a heat lamp at night and during the day if it is colder than 30 degrees. I am starting to think about what I will do with the girls when they stop laying for good. I can't bring myself to take them to butcher for stew meat.....but I can't afford/don't want to feed unproductive hens since I have limited space. I am hoping a friend of mine who has "only pet" chickens will take my gold star hen in. My two RIR are mean little buggers so I might send them to freezer camp...What are some creative ways you have gotten rid of your retired hens?
