I ordered some black orpingtons from Sandhill preservation center for a lavender project I am doing. They had to ship them in two separate shipments. So as free "warmers" I got exchequer leghorns, partridge rocks, partridge chanteclers and black dorkings. I sold the partridge rocks because they lay a brown egg and I will get them confused with my orp eggs. My intention was to keep any females of the white/cream egg layers and eat those eggs while incubating the orpingtons. The only roosters were to be lavender. I've successfully gotten rid of the leghorn roosters. But I really like the dorkings so I was thinking of breeding them in a different coop (that I'd need to construct). I'm pretty sure I have a pair of chanteclers and every time I mention them people go nuts. Should I keep them and find a way to breed them too? Is there even a market for the chicks? I personally think they look too much like a cornish and are kind of ugly, but I guess a hardy breed is pretty useful up here in northern WI.
