Hi ..... New member here although I have been surfing through the site for awhile now glomming onto any information that I found important to me or to the members of my poultry on facebook. My sister and I have been raising chickens for eggs and meat for a number of years now but this is the first year we are raising meat birds from our own birds and not ordering chicks. We are trying our hand at incubating. We have a mixed flock of mixed breeds. Our larger breeds are a mix of Bielfelder, Malines, mistral Gris,New Hampshires and Sussex, we have a Hoodan roo, and 3 japanese type banty hens. We also raise Ridley Bronze turkeys.
