I agree too.
Believe me it is better like that than seeing them struggle by not being well .having lost a couple of my favourites lately ( old girls) it is better for it to happen with their friends around them than at the vets.
I have been reading these posts with interest and feel very strongly that you should never eat any thing that is at all suspect . Why would any one be so naive? There are of course chickens raised for eating by farmers and the farmers are not usually attached to the chickens they raise.the chickens ...
