Just out of curiousity, and for future reference how do you folks avoid getting attached to your future Sunday Dinner? I'm thinking part of it might be having a big enough flock that you can have a few favorite (and permanent) members? Anyone had birds that were SUPPOSED to go in the freezer, but they decided to keep as pets? Also, since there is a pecking order in the flock, does removing some cause a flock-revolution? And do you keep your head roo and hen, to maintain some order, or is it based on something else? I'd love to feel like I would be able to cull with a minimum of guilt. Still not sure how I feel about doing it myself, although I'd know at least the birds had a great life, and weren't stuck in a horrid warehouse or shipped in those tiny, nasty cages.
