I was thinking the same thing or the Dixie Rainbows. I am thinking of ordering some of them and make a self sustaining flock of them. If I pass the inspection and can become a hatchery I would try to raise and/or sell "chemical free" chicks plus raising my own broilers.
One of my worries is my last remaining CX hen. Bert Jr tore her thighs all to pieces. It looks like someone took a large piece of fillet out of each thigh. I did clip Bert's toes afterwards. She has not laid an egg since the incident. She seems to be getting along fine just looks terrible. I thought about culling her before the vet saw her, then decided against it as long as she is healing fine. I will just tell her what happened and that they are a failed experiment. Hopefully, she will understand.
I have a CX, I froze after it died in a life trap, I know you are suppose to dispose of dead birds, I am not sure if bait in a life trap is disposing. It is way out of sight about 250 yards from my coops. My birds never go there, so I hope that is ok. I also have some eggs in a life trap in the woods about 150 yards from the coops. If there are critters around, I would rather keep them there.
