I live in Western Washington and would like to know your opinion on what I should raise here. My goal is to have two or three breeding groups that I can sell to dedicated chicken owners for show or just to keep a good quality breed going. At first I was thinking of raising some rare birds that aren't that popular or are dying out, but then I thought that just having a good breeding stock would be fine too as I don't want to be that picky on what it is that I raise. Araucanas and Ameraucanas are a definite possibility as I've come to love the blue and green egg layers. We won't be able to start this adventure just yet, but our plans are to buy 5 acres next year where I'll have plenty of room for a few chickens. Also, how many would you start with? 5? 10? 20? 100? My goal is to someday be able to sell fertilized eggs and chicks but I don't have a clue as to where I should start. Thanks for any and all responses! Looking forward to what you might suggest!
