    Well, I just ordered them online from murray mcmurray hatchery. I don't really have much use for hens, I don't collect the eggs. But I need to keep them around to settle the roos down, and also so people don't get the wrong impression about what I'm raising these birds for.

    edit: if you guys are wondering what I'm using for a brooder..I use kiddie pools and I keep them in the house. There is going to be a kiddie pool in every room of my house, lol.

    They won't be here for awhile, but here's what I bought:

    Chickens

    100 chicks from the all cockerels heavy assortment
    25 black jersey giants (cockerels)
    25 white jersey giants (cockerels)
    25 marans (straight run)
    25 easter egg chickens (pullets)
    25 of the rainbow layers assortment (pullets..duh)
    25 of the rarest of rare assortment (straight run)
    25 sumatras (straight run)
    25 buff orpingtons (straight run)

    Turkeys

    20 straight run turkey assortment

    Geese

    20 straight run from the fancy goose package

    Well if you look at that way, its a small number compare of what they feed chickens to their reptiles and snakes at the zoo...thousands of lbs of chicken I bet ya! That number of chickens Croc girl is feeding is small so its a problem at all. Heck I woudl love to send her some of my culled roos if I had someone like her needing roosters! Yay![​IMG]

    Question: if they're all going to be food and you don't raise any for eggs, then why do you care what breeds they are? Why pay more for certain breeds, like the rarest of the rare assortment? That list really makes no sense to me with the situation you describe. [​IMG]
