I would like to be able to expand on my buff flock by hatching out some of their eggs and keep the buff girls. I would like feedback on options available to me should I decide to do so. I have buffs and redstars so some chicks would be mixed, and then there is the roo's. They all share a coop with my banties and free range most of the time. I do not want to seperate them to keep purity, and I would still have the roo issue. So far as I see it my options are: 1. Culling at hatch but I am not experienced enough to determine gender and breed. (Redstars are sexlink- but will that remain true if cross bred?) Don't think that is an option, babies are just too cute 2. Process for food. Great idea, just not me. I have no local processing plant that deals with poultry. 3. Sell off surplus- place ads? flea market? How about those roo's? Will they be hard to get rid of? Anyone have any suggestions on what works for you?
