Greetings All! Looking for others who are raising dual-purpose flocks.... I'm not meaning a laying flock and a meat flock at the same location, but one group of chickens doing double duty. Edited to add: When I TRY to ask about the best birds/crosses for dual purpose, most of the time I get told to buy this or that meat-specific bird, butcher at 6 - 16 weeks, and away ya go...... or cross this for that sex-link (first generation), and try eating those. Either way, they're talking regular purchases of outside source eggs/birds... and that's NOT what I mean at all. I'm talking about a Self-perpetuating, multi-generational, decent table meat, decent egg layers, true Old-Fashioned Farmyard flock. If you've got too many roosters, you butcher the excess... If you have too many hens, or hens that aren't producing the way you expect... you butcher..... If you got company coming, and nothing in the freezer, you go grab a chicken, quickly butcher one out, and plan accordingly. I'm talking Out on the Frontier, Before the Civil War... type of farmyard flock. One group of chickens does it all! Kathy Mods- if this is the wrong place, please move.... didn't know whether to put this in the Meat Birds, Breeds & Genetics, Where are you?, or where. Tks.
