Hi, I do not have any experience with broiler breeds (Those chickens that are cross bred to be the best meat birds) because I've put pretty much all my research into egg layers, because I'm in the hobby for eggs not meat. But out of curiousity, if you bought a broiler chick, and raised it like a regular member of the flock, could it be used as an egg layer and become a member of your flock? I'm not going to do that, I'm just curious if they can. Thanks much! God bless.
