    Once you get a few good breeders though, you can hatch your own eggs.

    There's lots of people here with healthy stock that can probably hook you up with eggs though. I'd go with a private person before a hatchery if possible

    ok, thanks Friday.

    let me kind of outline my plan for us.

    we are more about production, that pretty.

    I was thinking, of having some small breeding flocks of RIR's, Barred Rocks, and white rock (mistyped earlier).
    then have larger breeding flocks of RIR rooster on the barred rocks, and RIR rooster on the white rock.

    the intent would be we could breed the sex link birds. good production we could sell eggs, and maybe chicks or pullets also.

    with that in mind, if any of you know, could you please pm me the names of some individuals, that have healthy strong stock, and would be willing to sell and ship some eggs?

    well the plan to start with, is with a relatively inexpensive hovabator that will hold 40 some odd eggs......then convert the old beverage fridge to a larger bator.

    well it's out on the porch right now, in the process of gutting the compressor and other non needful things......

    I'm gonna put it in front of the old transmission, and engine blocks I have on the porch, so it would be an improvement.
