I'd like to introduce myself to those who don't already know me. I originally started out with hatchery Jersey Giants for meat production, but was soon disillusioned with the hatchery stock as far as size went. Then, I got sidetracked with egg production, and added more breeds more known for eggs than meat. Currently, in my flock, I have Jersey Giants, barred Rocks, gold sex links, California Whites black & blue Ameraucanas, black copper Marans, partridge Cochin's, and recently added a batch of Cornish X for meat birds. And 1 New Hampshire rooster that was a result of a trade deal.
My egg production now is fantastic, but I want to re-focus on meat production now, and am contemplating adding some dark Cornish to the flock, and breeding up my Jerseys to what they should be, and learning to caponize the roos.
Anyway, I found this thread, and would like to hang out here to pick your brains!Edited by cyborg - 4/14/16 at 7:02am
