I was raising with reds and white giants when I was young but parents took care of that. This will be my first time raising my own. I would like to get 3-4 different laying breeds, but would like to be able to hatch out my own eggs in the spring time next year. Will I need to get a rooster for each breed, or 1 or 2 from specific breeds that are well known or very likely to "sit" on their eggs? want to make sure they get fertilized. Would i be better off with all same breed or can i mix and match and still be able to get fertilized eggs and what roosters will i need to get from which breed? I have been researching as much information as I can making sure all my chicks will be healthy and well taken care of when they arrive, I'm ordering about 25 of them and going for the best layers and sitters as possible. Can anyone help with choosing the best, I have my list, and will be purchasing all products and items that i will need for them for months to come, just want the best for my lil chicks.
