    I sold all my buffs except 1 hen and purchased some jubilees from meyer an really love them. Jubilee are just as friendly but they are huge!!i love the faster growth an huge size. At less than 3 months old they arent far off from my full grown buff orp hen i kept. They crowing already too. I also ordered 14 hatching eggs jubilee from greenfire fancy chick lines an the jubilee eggs are also larger so big i divided up between 2 setting buff hens. Only 2 hatched but im still happy as i know shipping reduces success. Considering chicks sell for $45-$49 each i had only $45 in eggs i came out ahead with 2 fast growing jubilees the chicks are healthy an they are on pace to be large like my meyer jubilees. I kept the 1 lone buff hen to hatch raise these chicks. I will be selling jubilee in spring.[​IMG]
