Hatching is addictive and I like watching them grow. I started with Welsummers, Barnvelders, Black Star, Australorp and Americana and a barnyard rooster "MUTT". Now I have 11 growing different colors all very interesting. The pullets will be keepers the roosters will be meat birds except one. They all sired by the same rooster but different hens. Got yellow legs green legs and gray legs got 4 toed chicks and 5 toed chicks. These will be referred to, by me as homestead chickens.
