Hey all. I am in love with a breed that isn't bred in my area and, full disclosure, I don't have $200 to buy and ship a pair/trio to my area from a breeder. So, I purchased hatchery chicks! My question is, is it possible/if so how many generations would it take to get chickens that meet basic requirements of the SOP standard? I'm curious if anyone has had to start a breeding program from hatchery stock before? Thanks for any helpful answers!
