Hello Chicken Lovers- We are talking about starting a very small conservation project, maybe 3 or 4 breeds. I am posting to try to get some ideas and info from the BYC community. ANY ideas, thoughts, opinions, concerns are welcome, but I do have a few specific questions..... * What breeds are most in need of conserving? * To help spread the breed, would it be best to hatch and sell chicks, or sell hatching eggs? * How many hens per rooster? * Who would you go to to get the best breeding stock of any particular species? (In other words, who has the best breeding stock of specific endangered breeds?) * Is there anything , in particular, different about keeping endangered chickens as opposed to keeping other types of chickens? I want to say Thank You in advance for any responses.....After we gather info from this thread, we will decide if / how to proceed.
