I have had chickens for probably 10+ years, and I am interested in starting to establish a show quality flock of birds to show and/or sell. I have some experience in raising chicks, but they have always just beenough backyard mixed breed chicks. I have a few questions regarding where to start; I plan on buying quality birds to start my flock. Should I make sure that my room and hens are not related, or does it not matter? How many roosters and hens should I have together? I have heard of 1 roo and 2 or 3 hens, or just pairs. Which works best? Any other tips or things I need to know? Thanks for any input, I have just started reaserching, and there are so many opinions and options out there that I don't know where to start.
