Chicken population reduction

Each spring we incubate our eggs and let hens sit on eggs to hatch them.  This is how we replace our older hens.  In fall we choose which roosters to keep and which hens are still productive.

The rest go to the freezer.  This year we had one hatch that was later, so the cockerels are still a bit small.  Ken has them working - they are cleaning out the bugs and weed seeds in the greenhouse.  Some warmer day soon, they will go to the freezer, too
