The husband is interested in having me hatch a group of meat birds for him. Well, not me personally, but in the incubator. HAHA.
Anyway, who does the meat bird thing and what do you recommend we get? And if you have hatching eggs of that breed, let me know.
We are thinking into expanding into meat birds (chickens) and Muscovy's.
Heritage breeds that make good meat birds:
Cornish x Rock
Wanted to share an interesting tidbit, while moving eggs from the incubator to the hatcher last week, we somehow missed 3 eggs that then sat out on the counter, outside of the incubator, no heat for THREE days before I noticed them. Was pretty bummed, but on a whim, marked them, and set them in the hatcher. ALL 3 hatched. The resilience of chicks amazes me.
I thought you were going to say they hatched on the counter and you found the chicks! Lol
Here are some pics from the eggs my friends classroom hatched. I think one is a rooster one is much much smaller than the other two. I always fall in love with the runt and then I find it dead. Hoping that isn't the case this time!! One has the pretty markings (lacing?) you mentioned.
Also, I took some close ups of our cochin. Any guesses on gender?
