i'm new to researching processing birds. we are just starting this year with 2 Cornish X just to see how it goes. (we are very small scale....lol) but i'm curious....you hear people talk about strictly meaties, or going the DP route. but what do you do with strictly egg layers when they are "spent" and need to be replaced by younger egg layers? i'm talkin about the Leghorns etc. heck, i've had EE who are scrawny, but are great layers of jumbo eggs. what would you do with a small bird? process it anyway and use 2 of them for one meal? use 1 and stretch it by putting it in a stew? also,i get attached to my layers cuz they're around for awhile. any hints as to how NOT to get attached?
