I'll admit...it's only mid-fall and I'm already planning on what I want to add to my flock next spring. I'm thinning down & selling off some breeds to add others....selling my MF Cochins, Crevecoeurs, LF White Houdan and bantam white & mottled Houdan)...
I'm adding one of these breeds, I haven't which one decided yet:
White Dorking (trying again)
But I'll need a new coop. They'll be my "free range" birds for some hatching egg sales, but mostly grasshopper control, eating eggs and eating the extra cockerels.
I'll be hatching some more bantam Spangled Orloffs (I need more hens), as well as LF GL Cochins (need more hens and a replacement roo as mine is nearing 4yrs old now).
I am adding another goose breed...not sure what, yet....tried Shetlands and they didn't lay worth a crap. Leaning back towards Buffs (hatched them out this spring but sold them)....or maybe Lavenders....I love the look of the saddleback Poms....
I'll have to have DH build me another waterfowl pen...and he's already said no....
As for my projects....
Bantam Dun Laced Wyandottes
Two more bantam coops!
