I have 3 12 week old boys that are going to have to be butchered, since I have no room for extra roosters. I had planned on keeping them for a little while longer, but due to the weather, I cannot house them as I had planned on, and they are now stuck inside the house with their 3 hatchmates, another rooster and 2 pullets, in a 3 by 7 foot box. I am considering having them butchered sooner than I originally planned. The local processor is going to be doing some birds this upcoming friday. If I don't have them done this week, I will have to wait until the beginning of April. These guys were an experimental hatch in a new incubator. Two of them are leghorn crossed with who knows what, the other is anybodies guess; but none of them are meat birds. I don't expect to get much off of them, whether or not I have them done now or later, but I am concerned about their quality of life. If I wait another month, are they likely to start fighting? They are already in tight quarters. And they have all been crowing for 5 weeks now. So far, no serious issues with eachother. But I don't want anything serious to start either, since I won't be able to do much about it if it does. Any thoughts?
