Hi, I'm planning for the future- I'd like to keep layers and retire the non-layers but I don't want them to be eaten or killed. Is there a special place that chickens go to retire? I live in the San Diego area. I'm hoping they might start laying again, so I'll give them a while after the days get longer, but I've just purchased a few 4 week old chickens and the coops not too big. Or maybe it's foolish to think they wont be killed? Any thoughts? Thanks.
