In the Brooder
- Jun 9, 2011
I'm ready to go big this year. I have had up to 20 birds so far, and I'm ready to go to 50 +. I'm just wondering which breed would be best. I've decided I want heritage breeds. I'm also going to raise them organically. I'm in the seacoast area of New Hampshire. I would like to have the largest eggs as possible. I have Jersey Giants, Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, Arucanas (EE's I know its a touchy subject), New Hampshires, Buff Bramas, Sultans, and silver laced wyandotte. They are altogether and seem to be doing fine. Some are easy going and others are a little snappyI'm not worried about the pullets. I know the males are the ones to look out for. I'm just looking for experience in large numbers with certain breeds. I don't mind mixing a few. I may get a male or two of certain breeds and split them up and keep the breeds going. I'm in the works of starting an organic farm, and this would be a great start for me. A pre thanks to all who my post some info for me.
