Too cute to eat? Maybe right now, but in about 14 weeks, the freezer will be full. This is our first foray into meat birds. The egg laying flock is currently at about 45 hens, and we added a handful of Ameraucana hens to that number this week as well (can't wait to see those first blue and green eggs!). As for most of these little guys, they are Delaware males destined for a short but meaningful life, then into the pot pie they go.
