It's one thing to feed, water, and clean after live chickens but it's another story all together when it's time to kill them. You reach a point when a chicken isn't worth keeping alive because it's not laying eggs like it use to. We have been at that point for over a month now. We were getting on average 8 eggs a day from 10 chickens. We decided to add 7 more chickens so we could start getting atleast a dozen eggs a day. Well our calculations never worked out. What ended up happening to us was little by little the egg count went down. We are down to an average of 3 eggs a day. Mike decided it was time so today he killed 3 chickens. I am very proud of him. He did an awesome job. He did it all by himself. So now I can officially say Mike is a true chicken farmer.
If you are interested in seeing some pictures let me know. I took a few today but didn't want to post them on my blog just in case someone wouldn't like to see them.
