I told him i want pure breeds,he said 1 rooster is all you need wont matter what breed it is the eggs will be pure when hatched okay im scratching my head so my question am i the idiot he says i am????? keeping a orpington roosters for orpinton girls in there pen and 1 brahma rooster for his girls???
