Okay decided on how I was going to approach my chicken craze lol. Bought 6 mixed breed hens and had to take the rooster with them but that works if I want them to set eggs right. Saw the egg size they lay and they looked good medium to large so I'm happy there. Just got to get the nesting area finished tomorrow. Okay so I have decided my chicken craze is going to go like this lol. 1. We wanted eggs now so the 6 mixed hens give me that. 2. I prefer to have pure breed chickens but an egg is an egg when it's scrambled with toast lol. 3. I have chicks that are pure bred so I can raise those untill next year when they will be old enough to lay. 4. Any thing purchased will be juvi or chick size in a pure breed and kept till they are old enough to lay/sit. 5. As they will all be in separate pens when the time comes I can sell/ give away all my mixed hens and rooster. 6, Bad thing is it always looks better on paper Any thoughts?
