Well I am a cattle rancher, but really I don't keep changing my mind about what I want in cattle, so it does not seem slow, that and I have a lot more cattle than I do chickens.
And chickens do take a long time if you don't use an incubator.
And I have bought lots of different kinds of chickens...
I am just ready for the days to get longer, and these girls to start laying again!
Thanks for all your explanation, I am keeping the flock master for one more year, going to concentrate that Bielefelder genetics.
