    Like the title says... Anyone have any luck keeping them back to breed?

    I've got a hand picked pair to try out this year. I selected the skinniest male I could find, and a smaller type hen.. Both with good leg structure and the etc... I'm keeping them on a reduced 19% diet to see how they will develop...
