    Hello everyone. Just returned to the "country" from the sprawl of Washington D.C. and am eager to start raising chickens again. In the past, we kept brown egg pullets (I believe White Rock x Road Island Red) from Moyer's (a local hatchery) with great success. This time around, we want to keep something more dual purpose, raising some meat birds, and trying our hand at breeding.

    Would appreciate a PM from anyone in Bucks (PA), Northampton (PA), or Hunterdon County (NJ) that could help us get re-started. In addition to finding some dual-purpose birds, we're also looking for some hands-on training in the butchering department.

    Cheers,
    Jeff
