Hello keepers of Viking Hens,
I am back and wondering what or where to learn everything I can about these wonderful birds. Should I try to read the old posts, is there a web place that one can go to? I have twenty five chicks coming to me the 18th of April, to add to my three hens and Loki, our rooster. I've been advised to only mate Loki with one hen, and perhaps the wild one, should we ever catch her again. The older hen of the bunch is Loki's mother.
I am interested in a breeding plan, how to make and keep the birds viable and of use to the breed, even if it is a landrace. I am getting my chicks from David Grote. The other birds appear to have lines that lead back to folks here on BYC.
The wife and I are very excited with the birds we have, and the ones we will get in just over three weeks.
Best to all of you and your birds,
