Wow. He's something else isn't he?
See that's one of the reasons I want to have a couple pure bred breeds. (Pure bred breeds?? ) Anyhow.... I still love my mixed just as much, but now that I pretty much have my laying flock established, (and they are doing very well) I have no reason to hatch more. If I have a couple lines of pure breed chickens then I will have an excuse to hatch if I can sell chicks. It's an enabling technique...lol I don't see alot of quality silkies around here, (I think everyone buys theirs from TSC) so I'm hoping if I can get a decent hatch with Ruby's eggs to be able to be a provider of a better quality silkie for my area. And the spitz are rare too. I mostly see RIRs and Orpingtons.
The Spitz are pretty cool. Didn't really like them at first, but have grown on me. You really should get on those SG's though!! I bet they would sell like hotcakes.
I was selling chicks pretty good last year, usually managed to sell everything I hatched by the time they were 3 months old. This year, with the purebreds, I have a waiting list to sell as soon as they hatch. That's a better profit because I never have to feed them or take up space in the pens
That's what I want to do.
