In the Brooder
- Sep 6, 2013
Hello everyone, I have posted this question before but have not gotten much of a response. So, I thought I would try again and maybe add a little more info. I currently have a flock of 13 Rhode Island Reds, 1 roo and 12 hens. I love them. They are great layers and are easy to work with. I would like to add some different breeds to my flock. What I want is to eventually have a nice barnyard mix that will be dual purpose, laying well as well as being good meat birds. I also want something that will go broody on occasion so I don't have to always hatch the eggs myself. My RIR never go broody. I have 24 eggs in the incubator now. So, what breeds would be good to add? I want larger chickens that lay well and go broody. And that will mix well with my current flock. All info is helpful, thanks in advance.
