Sold some Hens
I just sold my first two pullets today!!! They went to a nice couple from Louisville who wanted pet chickens. I let them take my favorite girl. I really wanted her to go to a home where she'd be a pet. Listen to me...How am I ever going to kill the roosters? My farrier said he could show me how to do it. They used to have broilers.
50 more chicks arrived this week from Ideal, so I'm back to having a closet full of chicks. It was nice not having to clean brooders and wash a million waterers and bring in bucketloads of feed from the barn...but these are sexed pullets, so hopefully that will mean more money and less roosters to kill. Poor guys.
