    If he just wants eggs, I have chicks hatching out from brown all heavy duel purpose eggs that he can have,free, if he wants to come to Tickfaw, to pick them up or some pullets/hens, cheap ! I just have too many chickens. Someone ordered some chicks and then couldn't take them. I am 1/2 mile off exit 36 on I-55 I don't know if that's too far for him, but I will make it worth the trip with free chicks.

    Welcome, Rick. I lived in Blanchard at one time. Now live in Folsom and just got 5 adorable Sizzles from Chris Herzog. When I lived in Blanchard I raised and showed collies. What kind of chickens do you have?:)

    Welcome to BYC!!

    There's a guy in that area that raises some Coronation Sussex, his name is Thomas Mangam. I think he also raises chiwawas.

    The only thing with trying to replicate those broiler type crosses is you are working with a hybid bird already so you cannot expect to get the same results even if you did get them to sucessfully mate or AI them it is the same as breeding a sex-link to a sex-link and expecting them to produce a like sex-link. Can't/won't happen they will often come out in multiple different varieties and because the broilers and most egg production type sex links are often a 4 way hybidized cross that begins way back to the grandparent stock. You can cross a White Rock over a White Cornish(or vice versa) and get a pretty decent meat type bird just the same as crossing your Production red rooster over your Barred rock hens and get BSL's but your just not getting the same exact high production/feed efficient, industry/commercial type birds.

    Ok enough Breeding class 101

    good mornin La-yers and BYC-ers [​IMG]
