Hi, I am finally ready to purchase a couple of chicks from IDEAL. I just want to be sure if I am ordering well for my first batch of chicks.I am only going to buy a couple to raise, and also because i have a large yard, but not a farm either.. I am going with.... 1. Golden Comets- I want some layers of brown eggs, and i have heard allot of these guys, if you guys have something to add please do (about three guaranteed for layers i want about) 2. Red Stars- I have also heard allot of these too.(same about three) 3. I am thinking of buying some cornish cross hens, do you think it would be good to buy some to try to raise? i actually want some because i want to breed them with maybe future brahmas, to experiment in meat quality...(should i buy a rooster for breeding purposes? Which type of chicken should i experiment with in your opinions? 4. Should i buy maybe one brahma? if so which one would be the best for meat(would use for breeding purposes) (should i buy a male for breeding?) and everything else? 5. I am thinking of buying maybe a duckling, i want to go with two peking. Do you guys think i should? they would be good for my yard, for them to forage around. but also maybe future layers. Well please tell me what you guys think, i appreciate it. Thanks!
