I have 6--welll actually I think they are either RIRs or red rock's (that's what I was told) and I was thinking about breeding them to actually hatch eggs. I don't want to mess around with incubators, so I was wondering if these breeds will go broody. If they don't go broody, I can get a silkie very easily. From what I understand, they are a dual purpose breed, and they are great egg layers, but I wanted to hatch some of them for meat. So this being the case--what type of roo should I get? Is this the place to ask, or should I go to meat birds? Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. thanks so much!!
