    We are going to hatch some eggs our selfs this year, we already have buff rocks but would love to try some thing new, what i would love to do is to hatch some thing that is a great layer (brown eggs) and that if we do end up with roosters we can butcher them, any ideals?

    Buckeyes. Mature faster into an edible bird. Might not lay quite as well, but nice eggs. And cold tolerant.
