    I have done it! I raised cornish crosses and freedom rangers that were sold for eating but brought them up to laying and breeding. I had people tell me there eggs would never be healthy, strong or fertile enough to hatch but i have a half dozen chicks out of about a dozen eggs. They are happy healthy little pigglets just like their hatchery bred parents.

    That is quite the accomplishment. I am curious to see how fast they put weight on. Keep us updated.
