A friend of mine and I are just starting a 4H group for our daughters. We are thinking they would like to do an incubation and hatching project and likely sell the chicks (mainly because none of us have room to keep all the chicks - although I'm trying to rationalize it!) Our thoughts were that if they are pure breeds and not barnyard mixes that it will be easier for us to find homes????? What do you think? Does that make sense? At the same time we don't have a tone of money to buy expensive hatching eggs. So we wouldn't be necessarily talking breeder quality chicks. Considering cost and breed will our best bet be to get hatching eggs form one of the big hatcheries? Also if one of the girls does a project on feather sexing - can anyone tell me breeds that feather sexing works for? And doesn't work for?
