Hi, Last week I ordered a special discount surprise egg collection. In it was 11 penedesenca eggs and 3 partridge penedesenca eggs. I had never heard of that breed before, and google didn't turn up too much information. I'm trying to figure out if I will keep these guys or not. I live in the mid Atlantic, so winter lows can be 9 degrees (not the most extreme, but a little lower than average). Birds are in tractors over a 1 acre veggie garden with 12 sf per bird outside and 4 sf inside. They are free to pasture about 1 hour a day, and 8 hours once a week on 5 acres of open land. We have significant predators in the area, including coyote, but our dog does a good job of marking our field, and we have never seen anything on our property (dog is indoors a lot, though). We have children that like to play with chickens, but we don't sit them in laps, just pet them at treat time. My goal in chicken keeping is to get eggs for my family and sell off baby chicks that I like to hatch. ANY adviceis appreciated, we are not low on room, but I do want to only keep chickens that are easy keepers (our other chickens are black copper marans, australorps, ameraucanas, and Easter eggers) Thanks!
