    Hello I just joined this site a couple of days ago. I had a bunch of laying hens but just sold them because I have to have surgery on my neck in a couple of weeks and I did not want my better half to brave the cold or my 75 year old dad too. When I get back up on my feet in a month or so I am going to redue my coop and get me some more hens. I had red sex links, delawareXhamp cross and buffs. I really liked the delawre X they where supper tame and was the best layers of the bunch. You could litterally walk up to them in the yard and they would squat down and let you pick them up. They layed X large eggs and lot of them too.

    Before I had barred rocks and black giants. they were ok. I have gotten all my chickens form cackle hatchery and they have served me well. Just trying to get them on the phone!

    This time I might go with straight Delawares and cross them with a RR Rooseter and make my own cross. I was also thinking of crossing them with a Cornish rooster to see what kind of meat bird I might get.??

    I also want to get some hens that will brood. I have been told banties are very good brooders. What would you recommend?

    Oh by the way I live in Kingman KS about 40 miles west of Witchita KS. I am from PA orignally but the military took me away years ago and once I found the midwest there was no way I would go back to the East again.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I hope the neck recuperates quickly! Welcome.
    This is a fabulous site. Everything from health of the chicken, to building coops, to 10 egg pound cakes!
    I have Buff Orps. I love them. Barred rocks are next on my 'wanta' list.
    I had banties as a child. Pretty little birds, sweet little eggs, and great mamas.
