I am thinking about revamping my flock again.
I took all my birds to Maryland and came back with way more than I wanted to. Of course, my main sellers are my Ameraucanas and all of the ones I have are under 3 months and all mine until they grow out. I thought for sure the chocolates would be a huge hit! No. A lady bought 2 chicks just to get her best hen off the nest. Now, people did want bantam Cochins, but not boys.
I think I want to get Marans again. I need another LF breed. I'll keep my LF choc/mauve Orps going because I really want a flock of Mauve for my own entertainment. Of course, the Ams will stay. I am back to considering selling off the Mille Fleur Cochin project again. I like them, though... I want to continue with the chocolate bantam Cochin project because I am sure they will sell when I get them looking good. And, again, my own entertainment.
What do you guys think I should do for my new LF breed?
Oh, and I have a pair of Tolbunt Polish I am pondering selling. If you are interested, pm me.
I think you should go with FBCM's and start with my 9 week old cockerels! They are free, just come get them!
2 RIR, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte, 5 leghorns, 7 BLack Copper Marans, 3 Olive Eggers, 8 Black Australorps, 2 Easter Eggers...how is that too many???
