I have a number of cockerels, and I'm not sure which to keep. I have the following: 2 Speckled Sussex 3 Cuckoo Marans 1 White Rock 1 White Leghorn 1 Buff Orpington 2 Easter Eggers My question is this: Should I keep the Buff Orp since I have 3 Buff Orp pullets, or should I just pick whichever cockerel I like best and let them mix breed with my 10 pullets? The pullets consist of Buff Orps, Easter Eggers, Turkens, Black Stars, and Silver-Laced Wyandottes. I'm not sure the protocol of chicken breeding, as I haven't crossed that bridge before. Is it a big faux pax to let them mix breed? Other than Easter Eggers, I have only purchased pure breeds myself. They are just my farm flock, but I don't want to make some dumb mistake that could have been prevented. Any and all suggestions are welcome! Thanks!
