Right now my layers are 2 bantam RIR, 1 BO, 1 BA, and 1 mix. Tomorrow I'm picking up a Black Copper Maran hen. She is a year old and a very reliable layer. The man is also giving me 20+ roosters for "Camp Kenmore". There will be a few BCM and Cuckoo Maran in there. I plan on picking out a nice rooster and keeping him with my hens. The plan is to eat the eggs but when I have a hen go broody...I will let her hatch out the chicks and then they will head towards "Camp Kenmore". I think this will be a good substitute in between my Cornish X batches. I plan on letting them grow out for 20-24 weeks. Thoughts? Feedback? Experience with these guys?
