I am thinking about having hybrid chickens and if I will be able to sell them.
That really depends upon what the hybrid is, how well it does what it is supposed to do, and if people around you are interested in what you have to sell.
Please tell me the difference between "hybrid" and "mutt"?
Hybrid = mutt. A poodle bred to a maltese = malt-a-poo = mutt
I absolutely LOVE my mutts.
Are they profitable? No.
Will people buy them? Sure.
Quote:An extra syllable?
Quote:Hybrid is between two species NOT BREEDS
Mutt is just a mix of anything
a hybrid is something with a different breed mother and father and a mutt is the same thing but is probably more disrespected
Go to dictionary.com and see for yourself. Maybe it will clear things up.
Quote:So it's all a matter of marketing. Now for a serious answer to your question. I would make sure I had a market for them first. Talk to people, advertise, find out if anyone would buy them before you jump in with both feet. Unless, of course, you have room to keep lots of extra chickens.
well, lots of folks pay for black (or red) sex lined hens. so if by hybrid you mean, for example, a cross between a RIR and a BR then many are doing this profitably now.
I would say your success will be determined by the results of your breeding efforts.
