Can someone please tell me what culling means? Thanks
Thanks, I understand it better nowRoslyn said:I think culling is a word that describes a purposeful removal. You can purchase 24 meat birds, but you don't cull them, you just butcher them at the right weight since all of them were meant for the freezer. Culling means that you thoughtfully go through the flock and pick and choose for a reason, whether it's who is laying and who isn't, who is of breeding quality and who isn't.
Even a dog breeder will look at a litter of pups and "cull" the bloodline by spaying/neutering certain pups for pets and remove them from possible future breeding.
