I hatched out 17 chicks that I was planning on butchering at 16 weeks old. I only want 3 more laying hens. I don't have a plucker and my husband says he won't help me kill them, I think my son will. I keep reading that they don't taste good and are tough and hard to pluck. SO, should I attempt this or should I just re-home some of them and stick to grocery store chicken???
