I've got my incubator and on Monday I'm off to our local poultry auction to buy hatching eggs . I'm after a breed to raise for meat that can live range free in an area of woodland. My plan is to put a coop high enough off the ground to keep them safe from foxes at night. I've got a couple of feral Derbyshire Redcaps who were given to me last summer from a friends feral flock, they live in the woodland and roost in a tree. They come for food, but refuse to stay in the run with my layers. I'm wondering if there are other breeds that are tough enough, with good survival instincts, that are also reasonable meat birds? I bought some French Maran eggs last week for a broody hen. I also noticed Rhode Island Red eggs. It will depend on what is entered at the aution on Monday, but I could use some suggestions of breeds to look out for.
