Standard Whites (though there still chicks) Bantam White laced reds, Bantam darks, Bantam whites. I feel so alone out here.

    I got my first breed of Standard Dark Cornish as chicks last year, and am planning to breed and increase flock this year. I will appreciate any advice on how to do the right way of breeding them. Just recently brought a book- The Mating and Breeding of Poultry, by Harry M. Lamon and Rob R. Slocum, also ordered - American Standard of Perfection, which will come in the mail this week. Again, will accept any suggestions.[​IMG]

    I would love to get a start on some real LF White Cornish since there are so few out there and help preserve them if I could find a good deal on some eggs to get started with.
