has anyone done this? i did! the thing is, the chicks are large! they are big ol' things! they astound me. the white rock/sussex mix are all bigger, notably- than the pure sussex chicks are. i have two pure and 6 mix. i am thinking that these will make excellent LARGE dual purpose birds. i plan to process the males at the end of dec, but i wonder if perhaps i should keep one for breeding. just wondering if anyone has done this and what your experience is. thanks.
