    Hi all, I have just started getting our first eggs from our 8 hes and they are great...I love having our first birds. Now to the sad ????::
    I know I will need to have the birds culled eventually, when is that? I don't want to end up with tough meat when we do it. What age is that suppose to be? two years old? Any ideas would be great.
    Also, I am trying to plan for when to order my next batch of layers so we will have con't eggs. thank you...juice
