Our 4 year old layers had really slowed down laying and we were having predator visits. So, the eight remaining girls went to the processors. They were calm and everything went well. I feed raw to my dogs, so that will be where the girls will go. I miss the interaction, but it was better to have a clean ending instead of the kill by the coons, fox and what have you. Am looking forward to the new chicks next Spring.
At least we don't have to worry about frozen waterers and feeding over the Winter.

You can always get a jump start for early spring eggs.

Thank you. Yes, looking forward to the new ones does help. I will miss the interaction with my layers. My broilers are a different story......... but my hens were pretty interesting.
