SO I have a few breeding projects this year: Olive Eggers: I want to breed for egg production. These birds are typically not the best layers. So begins my journey. I am beginning with CooCoo Marans x Auracana I have ordered 15 new americanas to work with. I have one of the aforementioned crosses Roo to work with. Assorted breeds: I have an assortment of layers. I am giong to systematically breed my best layers with my RIR roo for lighter wieght, higher yeailing egg production. Or at least that's my attempt. Breeds that will be bread will be listed, but I am analyzing my at RIR, Black Minorca, Deleware, and Buff Orpingtons. I will post breeding stock pictures when I decide. Sooo excited! I will be working on preserving the SOP while striving towards egg production on my Chocolate and Gold Laced Orpingtons. Wish me luck and any thoughts on these breeds would be appreciated.
