    I'm building a poultry house and hatchery, i plan to sell shipped chicks next year. right now i have BBS ORPS, and i want the add one or two breeds to the line up, i was thinking about copper marans, lav cochins, or BLRW.

    what would you like to see? what chicks are hard to come by?

    From what I have seen on byc sell area: Barnevelders, sussex, polish, "olive eggers", lavender anything(orps, cochins, silkies)and the BLRW.

    My own wish list : silver gray dorkings, anything with the true chocolate gene [​IMG]

    Lavender is good.
    What about bantams?
    Golden and Silver Sebrights are getting popular.

    I know someone working on lavender laced gold sebrights in AUS, they look cool.

    Your best sellers would be the common barred rock, rhode island red, white leghorns for locally but your big sellers would be a new color fad like buff columbian rocks (I can tell you how to make them if you want) or some other cool color that isnt that common. Think about the past breed/color fads, there were silkies that were huge, then barred rose combs, cuckoo polish, dun polish, BLR wyandottes, and some others. Maybe work on chocolate(dun) in a new breed like cochins or ooo maybe chocolote leghorns. Maybe make crele leghorns (another simple project, this one could be done with 1 cross) or something else cool. Dang I could keep going and going for cool new possible projects that would only take one or 2 crosses and most of them would be within the breed so no outcrossing.
