OK...this may be a first, but unique situations call for unique answers... I live in the city, and am not permitted to keep roos, which I'm sure is a familiar circumstance for a lot of us. I am also addicted to hatching! More to the point, I like to have the best birds I can get...even if it's not for breeding, but just for my laying flock. Late this past summer I picked up three SQ RIR hens...these gals are really some of the best I've ever seen...so much so that I feel it's a waste not to beed them and hatch out some eggs....so my question is, has anyone ever "borrowed" a roo for breeding, or sent hens out to be breed for a while then hatch the eggs? I would like to put my girls under a quality RIR roo for about two weeks and collect the eggs to get some hatching eggs, so if anyone knows of a good RIR breeder in central/SW Ohio feel free to let me know. So...crazy or not?
