Awesome! I'll stop there when I stop at TSC, as they're in the same plaza!

My mixed up flock of Barred Rocks, Red hens, Brown Leghorns, Speckled Sussex,  EEs, BLRW, Buff Orps, Wellies and Delawares Marans and Ameracaunnas, lone Sebright roo  and a Muscovy quad.

 

In quarantine a quintuplet of barred rocks (hopefully hens)

 

In the brooders:  Pekin ducklings, New Hampshire Reds, Buff Orps, Iowa Blue.

My TSC  store is expecting their chicks any day.  Could be today.  They have a minimum of six even if you have other chicks at home.

If it isn't an Arabian it's just a horse.

Those are the same ones that the TSC in Camden SC had too. I picked up six of the Red Pullets. I really want Easter Eggers, do you know of anyone that has them in the Midlands?

I just called the 3 stores around here and asked what they would have and i have to say im a little confused. They spoke kind of fast so i may have gotten some of the names wrong but i was hopin yall could tell me a little about them. We are wantin mainly egg layers but prefer ones that double as meat if needed. They said they have cornish rocks, red pullets (not sure what those are), brown bantams (or brahmas but im pretty sure thats cows not chickens so i musta wrote it down wrong lol), and black giant pullets. Im not sure what pullets are and the brown bantams are straight run and im sure that means mixes. Would any of these breeds be good for what we want? Im tryin to google them but im clueless lol

Wife to an amazing man, mother to 3 kids, 4 dogs, 1 goldfish, 2 calves, and 17 little chickies. Looking forward to expanding our homestead.

The cornish rocks are meat birds. Red pullets are probly red sex links or RIR, the browns could have been brahmas, my local store doesn't separate the bantams by color. Black giants are probly black jersey giants.

Of those for eggs and occasional meat, brahmas, red pullets(smaller bodied but big enough for a small family), and the giants(slow to mature but large bodied), these would all work for your needs.

And pullets are young hens, usually before 1yr old.

I'm looking to swap Coturnix eggs for turkey eggs.

Straight run is a mix of makes and females. 50/50 chance. Brahamas are good layers. Not great, just good. They have a good amount of meat on them also. The down fall is they take a while to mature. Cornish are meat birds. Red pullets are iffy with meat. A good breed for you would be a barred rock. They are great layers and good for meat as well.
