    I've been trying to figure out the most popular birds for specific things. I am going to try to obtain some of the top producers as young birds and end up selling them.

    Out of chickens, ducks, turkeys, guineas, geese, & pheasants what type (and include the breed. Breed is the most important) you think would be the most popular bird for....


    Egg Production?

    Meat?

    Fly Tying?

    Show?

    & a combo of Egg and Meat production?

    That may depend on region. Last show I went to, the OEGBs far outnumbered the silkies.
