When you read you begin with A, B, C. When you breed, you begin with... uh... if I KNEW, I wouldn't be asking! I wanna be a Buckeye breeder when I grow up. There's more to it than just tossing some pullets and cockerels together, but I can only start with learning to care for them. So I've got fifteen pullet chicks and three cockerel chicks from Meyer, will let them grow up and see what happens. Next year, though, I don't know where to head. I want to help save the breed... what's the best route? Also, what is a good basic book on breeding chickens?
