We have had a great season raising a small flock (60) of cornish cross meat birds. We are interested in raising some dual purpose heritage breeds next spring to also enjoy some homegrown eggs. Is it possible to raise and maintain a dual purpose breed, such as the barred plymouth rock, along with some quick growing cornish cross in the same coop and run?
Can they be fed the same feed?
We have a big coop - the 60 cornish cross have lots of room, along with a large fenced in area for them to forage.
Thanks for any advice
