First lesson learned in raising animals .....we eventually have to eat them. Fact of life. I'm a hunter that only have gotten one deer in my many years of hunting and ate him with no problem. The Dh decided the extra roo that wasnt getting along with the roo he wanted to keep so he had to be in solitary that happens to be where the new chicks need to go . So today was the day. I knew it was comming but i wasnt raised a farm girl like he was and these have been more like pets. So ya I'm kinda sad. *sigh*

Once you have them done, it is much better, they look like store chickens, and taste much better. If it still kind of bothers you, go buy a store chicken, and cut it up and mix it up with your butchered chicken, and then you can pretend that you are eating the store part.

It does get easier. MrsK

We have two roos as well--and though both roosters are well-behaved, I think we'll be downsizing to one by "processing" the Buff Cochin--he is harder on the hens, crows too much, and is a dullard. We're tired of hearing his incessant crowing and I don't want his genes passed on, ever.

And yet he's a good-looking rooster, and certainly not mean in any way. I am sad over it, too.

It's one of the less-pleasant aspects when one gets to know one's animals.
