Last Fall, due to 2 broody hens, I managed to hatch out 11 chicks. 3 of them are roos and are a cross between White Rocks and Silver Sebrights. These are the meanest roos that I've ever experienced. They harass all of the other larger birds in their run and try to mount everything in sight. They were crowing at a bit less than 3 months of age. It's amazing how quickly they matured. So this last weekend I decided that their time in our coop is coming to an end in the very near future. If not one evening this week then surely next Saturday. I had always thought that the first time butchering chickens would be slightly difficult but these little demon spawn birds from hell have assured me that it is not going to be the case. I've cleaned duck, pheasant, quail, etc... so that part is covered. Now to bleed them out and try to see how difficult it is to do caponizing. The next batch of roos will become capons.
