      Hello. I saw your review about RIR. Where was your strain from?

        They came from tractor supply believe it or not. Tractor Supply comes from Hoovers Hatchery. They’ve been really good.

    Started out with a flock of 9 Delaware’s, 1 Roo. Roo ended up being a real jerk so I traded him with another Delaware Roo from a buddy that got his in the same batch as me from McMurry.

    Bred the Delaware’s and reproduced 10 chicks in the bator. 5 were hens, 5 were Roos. We slaughtered the Roos at 3 months and sent them to freezer camp and put the hens in with the layers, which gave us 13 & 1, plus two Buff Orpington I inherited from a buddy, making 15& 1. Lost two hens to dog attack, and one died inexplicably. They were eating eggs and I decided to sell them all off for $25 after picking up some RIR chicks from Tractor Supply (5P1C).

    I kept the RIR’s for a year and bred them. They’re in their second year now. I bought 8 American Bresse from GreenFire farms in April and received 11, which all lived (7P4C) and are 10 weeks old as of today 07/08/2018. I hatched 7 RIR chicks from flock and bought 10 more American Bresse from Bresse Farms. I have 8 Bresse and 7 RIR chicks ~ 1 week old in the brooder now.

    I may or may not keep the RIRs depending on laying of Bresse. If Bresse work out I will switch over to only them and pick up a few White Orpingtons to work in some broodiness into the bloodline and freshen things up a bit.

    Currently at 3 flocks.
    Flock 1, RIRs, 13mos, 5P1C
    Flock 2, AB, 10wks, 7P4C
    Flock 3, 7RIR8AB, 1wk
