Lapeerian - I know you are experienced - but I see a possible danger ... when chickens come out early in the morning - even in electronet - some owls are still hunting ! So beware that you have that danger that the netting won't prevent.
I will have a decent amount of hatching eggs for chickenstock -
pure Marans (for the egg color -they will NOT be show quality in feather color - may be white, splash or black? Totally up in the air, but all pure Marans w/feathered legs and typical body shape).
pure AB (Arkansas blue) lays light blue egg, medium size, but production numbers (lots of eggies). Bodies are splashed (white or grey base) and lean like a leghorn - so easier on the feed bill.
Mix - mostly medium brown color in large or extra large eggs, some olive eggers
I can't wait to close my breeder pens and get back to one big flock again .... what a pain for so many multiple feed and water chores ! :) ha ha
