I have decided that I want to raise meat and laying chickens, but its so hard deciding what breeds to go with and which hatchery to get them from. I live in SE Michigan. I've heard good things about Townline, and Cackle. Any advice? I'm thinking that I want Cornish Cross for meat, and a mix of RIR, Barred Plymouth Rocks, Australorps, and a few Leghorns. I want breeds that are especially docile. I've heard that ISAs are good, but only available from Townline? I feel like I'm on chicken overload. I like the Hungryman's Special from Cackle (50 straight run Jumbo Cornish Cross & 25 brown egg layers(hatchery choice)), it seems like a lot of birds to jump in with, but I like that I can raise all the meat we would need in under 3 months. I just feel like I need some help! Thanks!
