In the Brooder
- Jul 21, 2012
I'm trying to decide which hens to get. I currently have 4 Black Star/ Road Island Reds. I'm trying to keep the egg production up even with the 'not so sunny' weather that Southern California has been having recently. I figured I have room for 12 hens in the space that I have for them. I would also like to get 2 turkeys to show at the fair in the summer. I have a few different choices: Road Island Red/ Black Stars (currently young egg layers), Welsummers, Americanas Cochins, Cochin roos and, Blue Cochin Roos, (all about 4 weeks old). I have no idea when or where I should/could get turkeys to raise. Any ideas/suggestions? Thx!
