I have Three BCMaran hens and a rooster, less than a year old, a breeding trio of Barnavelders (dutch variety) and two Gld Laced Wyndotte hens. I think my idea was to mix them to keep the chocolate colored egg and get the laced feathers. NOt being a genetic expert, I have discovered reading here that this is not possible or recommended. Sooo, I would like to know , since I live in town, with very limited space, what might be the best route. Give some away, sell the roosters, get rid of some of the hens...perhaps the wyndottes. I am a priest, so this is a hobby, but I think I am in over my head...and getting there fast with the poop factor. I would guess I have too many roosters? Just need some creative ideas.
