    I'm looking to start a breeding flock of a dual purpose breed. I have a few breeds in mind and I thought this site would be a great place to narrow down my search. It seems hard to find good breeding stock from all the big hatcheries. Thanks for all the help.

    [​IMG] Maybe you can find some breeders who have good stock as a foundation. A lot of hatchery breeds are lacking breed type so the way up to improvement will take much longer.
