It must be coming up to that terrible time of year for the NZ kake breeder to cull their healthy vibrant new generation.

I have a question;

Probably the most humane stage to destroy unwanted birds is at the early egg stages before the embryo matures.

As to culling, unwanted birds...one cannot dispose of eggs if keeping several genetic lines viable for when Private breeders are included in conservation programs in the future, as per the Ministers intructions couple yrs ago.
It is going to happen.

Feathers,
no we do not keep them. We did once in the early days, (molted) but could not find a use for them.
Culling is a most unpleasant and upsetting task, to recover these under these cirumstances had not crossed my mind with such a heavy heart.
There would have to be a very good reason to do so, and even then.....
I dont know.

There is probably no market for them.

Market...I didnt think in the concept of selling or such.
We here dont breed or keep with any intention of profit or even recoving costs...Some how it doesnt sit well with us suppling endangered native birds for profit...maybe we are just old fashioned LOL.
I wonder if The Moari used them? Certainly any Iwi who are interested we could sort something out that way.
