    First I really don't know what AI stands for. Second some breeds you can tell if its a boy or a girl at 5 weeks it all depends on the breed.
    For ten good laying breeds here's my top ten favorites

    Brahma
    White Leghorn
    Buff orphington
    Barred rock
    Easter egg chickens
    Black astrolorp
    Jersey giants
    Samoln Favorolles
    Rhode Island reds
    New Hampshire reds
    Delaware's

    I have 1 white Leghorn, 2 white brahmas, 3 barred rocks, 1 buff orphington, 1 amerucana, and 1 mystery chicken .
    No I'm quite attached to my chickens, but I have roosters and hens so once they get it on so to speak I'll hatch the fertile eggs and you can pick up the all the surviving chick's that you want.
    And your best bet to have a successful hatch would be to buy a manufactured incubator. Thanks for asking
     
  4. AI = Avian Influzenza (sp), or in terms of Livestock, Articficial Insimenation

    Brahmas *technically* aren't a laying breed, but I love them too[​IMG] Plus, mine lay pretty well

    Well, I meant like how long, what temp, what humidity, etc.

    You need a bit refining for harder Chicken Q's, but otherwise your good for beginner Q's [​IMG]
