So I am looking all over the forums, and alot of peoples Signatures are a little something like this: I Am A Breder Of Wheaten Marans, BC Marans, Shamos, Heritage Dominiques........ But What I don't get, is if you are breding these chickens and you don't want them to mix, For Instance, You Don't want your Shamo Rooster Mating with your Wheaten Maran Hens. How do you breeders do it? Keeping them separate like this? DO you you have different runs, or just cages you put them in??? I am getting ready to get rid of all my adults, and so far I have hatched 36 Mutt Chickens. I have 9 Hens, RIRs, Barred Rocks, An EE, and two other Mixes and a Wyandotte, and 1 EE Rooster. I want them all gone, and I plan on selling all of these babies except for 9 of them. Then When they grow up and I can see the genders, I will keep 4 hens. And Recently I hve been wanting o start Breeding Turkeys And Black Marans And BC Marans. But I want Only a limit of Chickens, And I don't want to be incubating Mix Bred Eggs. How can I separate these Chickens? Tell Me, WHat do you do with your Breeding Programs? And exactly what do you do it for?
