I've been coming to this forum so frequently, I thought I should join. Currently we have some old hens that are not laying anymore. They have a coop, but spend most of the day running around the backyard with the goats. I'm really missing those fresh eggs and my kids are missing all the pudding they used to eat. We have few chicken eggs in the incubator hopefully getting ready to hatch any minute. Only 1/3 of the eggs we bought were actually fertile Now I'm on the lookout for some fertile eggs closer to home. Our favorite chickens are Barred Rock and Ameracaunas, but would just like some good layers. The kids are trying to convince us to move to ducks, so I should probably read up on those. How does duck egg pudding taste?
