I will be starting my own flock in the spring and thannms to BYC i am more confident and excited than ever! My first question is whether i should stick with one breed or if i should diversify my flock. Initially i will be wanting aabout 10 hens (pullets from Ideal most likely) to start and then eventually add a rooster perhaps. I currently live on a 50 acre farm and have a coup/run (approx 30'x30') under consstruction so space isnt my issue. The goal of my flock will egg producers mainly and to provide a natural compost for my gardens. With that being said i was originally thinking to start with a straight leghorn flock, but the more i read i seem to be the odd one out with a 1breed flock. Any advice on the subject will be greatly appreciated! Lookforward to reading!
