On June 1st, we'll be setting 2 dozen mutt chicken eggs to hatch. With all the hatches we've done, we seem to have better hatch rates with mixed breeds than we're getting with purebreds. Soooo... I thought I'd like to see if anyone out there would like to hatch along with us while we continue to generate mixed breeds! I know purists will scoff... go ahead, scoff. There are a lot of us on here that have a real love for mixed breed chickens. We get great hybrid vigor with mutts, and we're trying to expand our laying flock. I have a dozen eggs from our flock (mottled java roo over 4 different hens) and a dozen eggs from gryeyes' flock (heaven only knows who laid them and who the daddies are). I would set more than 2 dozen if I could get my hands on another half dozen or so. Maybe I'll toodle down the hill ... they have fertile eggs in the grocery store at SaveMart in Placerville.
