Me too.When I want pures, I pen them ahead of time and wait for sperm to clear
Agree again.The heavy breeds are good for meat...we always get too many roos in a hatch, right?.
Also I don't know how much this makes a difference but I HEARD so I'm not sure about the facts of it. But learning that chickens like people have a certain number of eggs when born I figured the not everyday laying and having a few more hens gets you the same amount of eggs a day, and allows for a mishap from predators, and therotically lay longer. Although I'm sure the leghorns have more eggs in a lifetime.
I also like the occasional brooder to keep the predator rate even. I'm not, not going to free range mine. Also the bigger NOT WHITE chickens are a little harder to see from hawks.
I've heard and seen that. I was wondering about mixing in some with my flock. The free range roo's may not make it work out very well. Although my flock is Dark Cornish. It has OEG in it.Old English Games that my ex and my DS raise.... Fierce mothers, very good at setting
