I optomistically kept four Ranger hens and a Ranger roo to overwinter. Wanted to incubate and raise my own meat birds. Had a great space for them out in the greenhouse. Heated it all winter and kept the water from freezing. Fed them all winter long. One hen died early on - Heart attack?. Two more hens bit the dust in February- their combs turned blue. More heart attacks? Anyway- now I've got a roo and a hen. Just in time for spring incubation my hen stops laying. What do I have to show for all the hours spent tending my birds and paying for feed and heat all winter long? A single meat chick. Just one. One egg went into the incubator before the Ranger hen stopped laying. Failed experiment. From now on I just buy meat chicks in the spring. Or maybe I can incubate some. Does anybody have any fertile eggs from meat breeds that I could incubate?
