I plan on working with several breeds this coming year. Specifically: BBS Orps: I have stock from several lines now and by spring I should be ready to go! Buff Orps: I have stock now and I'm working to improve my lines. It's looking like it will be good. This project is the one I'm working with my 4 yo son on. The Buffs are HIS. Project birds: I have some things in the works and I need to get some extra pens built to move forward this year. Speckled Sussex: I should be able to have breeding stock of these later this year if all goes well. Sex-links: There is a local market for sex-links so I am working on buying eggs for breeding stock this spring. They include: NHR, RIR, SLW, BR, and Dels. I'm excited for this one because it will allow me to sell more chicks locally. I am also working on some random breeds for DW for her layer flock this year. Ameraucanas top the list. This has been a good place to start the birds we are interested in until we figure out if we like them or not. Our EE's will go away when I have Ameraucanas that lay. Nothing against the EE's, they just aren't as "pretty" as the other birds I have here. Slate Blue turkeys are on the list this year as well. Mostly we just want them to eat for the holidays. I'll be ordering hatching eggs for them soon too. I am going to continue to build up my quail flock. I have a local interest in them too and, hey, they're cool! My silkies and d'uccles are going bye bye, as well as the ducks. Nothing WRONG with them really, they just don't fit the bill for what I am trying to do around here. Now they are just taking up space. I have a lot of building to do as soon as the ground thaws. I need two 8x24 buildings and a fenced chicken yard. I'm ready to go as soon as the weather breaks!
