    G’Day from down under Shamrock 725 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    I've never raised meat birds but I would guess the type of chick you get would depend on if the parents were crosses or not. You can get answers to your question here:
