If I hadn't grown up practically living off of chicken, I would probably do the same I just try not to think about it.
I can't imagine hurting mine though. I don't see how some people with backyard flocks can do it
oh I love the mille fluers, I had a few of those, but the rooster ended up being a real bully, so I had to give him away and did not want for him to be alone so I gave the 2 hens with him...he loved his hens. I have two mottled japanese that are adorable, they are my favorites now, but those mille fluers are just soooo pretty!
Shi, Ringo definitely is different! His previous owner had too many roos and poor Ringo was a loner. So I took him in and he's quite happy with all these hens running around Even though he is a Polish mix, he looks just like a pure one to me. I'd love to get him some pure hens, they're really pretty birds! (well, to me. I love tophat chickens but dad think's they're ugly, LOL)
I love them too So far these aren't that old yet, so he hasn't really shown his cocky side yet. Still waiting for the crowing to start The color is really pretty once they're a year or two old. They're still not all colored up yet. I'd love to get some porcelain ones too. Had a sablepoot in that color once; very, very pretty!
