You never know RC Barnevelders may be popular with people that live in the colder climates where single combs freeze. They have RC varieties of other breeds, why not Barnevelders....I always wondered why there wasn't any double-laced wyandottes too...there's just about all the other colors of dottes:) Anyway you'll have something different and people will want them:)
In my climate, the mid summer hatched birds turn out the smallest and the best time to hatch for me is early fall and late winter through late spring. The summer heat is the biggest stress here:(
I do keep finding myself wanting to hatch more and more in the quest to hatch "THE ONE" perfect bird.
I also have about 6 dozen eating eggs in my fridge and everyday when gathering eggs I find myself thinking, "OOOhhh, what a pretty egg...I need to hatch it!" But, I think the batch in my bator now is going to be my last until fall. Now I have to start figuring out which adult hens to keep and which to get rid of to make room for the new pullets.
