    I have all my bantams together now and I getting ready to separate them for the spring hatch how long until they produce pure blooded breeds?

    I seperated mine, and waited 3 weeks before incubating them. They were all pure when they hatched.

    after seperating your breeds, it will take 3 weeks (just to be safe) till u start getting pure eggs

    this post answered my question before I got a chance to ask it.
    I was going to ask how long as well. I switched my roosters tonight, took phoenix roo out of the pen and added my china game roo. So 3 weeks is the way to go to be safe? thanks.

    Geez, I was told 6 weeks by someone. Three weeks seems to be unanimous here. Good to know!
