Setting culling standards for small and backyard flocks
In any poultry production flock it is important to check your birds daily and remove any sick, injured or poor producers. You should have pre-set standards to follow when deciding to cull or not. Once you have culled a bird, it is important to euthanize them humanely. As sad as these situations are concerned, it is important to be prepared. Dr. Greg Martin from Penn State University will discuss setting culling standards as well as methods of euthanasia.
