I am not sure I understand. I am new to this. This is what I have, 8 lavender orps I bought. Looks like at least 4 are roosters. I was gonna keep the hens and 1 rooster. Can I breed them?
Sorry I didn't understand your answer.
So I will keep 2 roos and whatever are hens. Then I can add more hens. You said even black. Does that make sure I get more lavender in there. Alnother dumb question if I am really trying to get into the breeding I would put 1 roo with xamount of hens and then the other roo and hens in seperate pen? In other words I wouldnt put both roos in same pen with a bunch of hens. You said black ? Would it be a black orp? Not ever seen one. Or would it be like an Australorp?
I have become totally addicted to chickens. Gonna try to learn all I can about breeding.
Thanks for putting up with my stupid questions.
