We have not reached that point yet as ours are just year and younger....Probably donate them to a 4-H club, we have a santuary near here too for all animals.

I only know one person who has chickens. She keeps them until they die of old age. I believe 2 of her 10 have stopped laying.

Ours will stay with us until old age as well.

I butcher them and eat them, or if you don't want to do that then sell them in chickens auction.

I get mine butchered as long as they arent pets. But some people might buy them from you just for the novelty of having an egg every once in a while or so. They don't care if they're not productive.

I am giving my older girls to a friend that just wants a few eggs here and there. 7 hens hes taking but I did consider having them butchered but since he wanted them He gets them.
