Again, appreciate all the feedback everybody.
The cool thing about livestock is there are so many choices everyone can find something they like. A niche. For me, the bantams and silkies don't scratch an itch. Appreciate them, but not what I picture when I close my eyes and picture birds in my yard.
I'm still in phase one. Production mode. Just learning the craft. As a hunter it equates to just filling your tags. I can certainly see after a few years wanting to move onto phase two, focusing on a breed and working on an improvement plan. Or a more mature approach to hunting, going after specific animals.
Every addiction has its phases. I'm enjoying this chicken math entry phase quite a bit. 😃
I went through phase one rather quickly. All the way to having birds shipped from all over. I have Sulmtaler chicks that just arrived and have had, during the last year, no less than 20 breeds. I have settled into Black Copper Marans, Araucanas, Cream Legbars, Bielefelders. I have some Sulmtalers if you would like some chicks. They are straight from Greenfire.
