Okay, several of my silkies have an incurable eye virus and I was wondering what I should do with them. The vet said I should cull them, but I can't bring myself to do that. So I tried giving them away for free to someone who didn't have any other chickens and was willing to care for them. I got one person who was interested in them, but then changed her mind. So what should I do? I was thinking of just letting them free range so they wouldn't take up so much food and space, but last time I tried to free range silkies an animal killed one of them. Any ideas would be appreciated.
