I had a healthy if aging home grown flock, then I tried adding young hatchery birds for a fresh bloodline. They didn't do too well in the rains this spring and summer, no matter how much shelter I provided. I think fall might be better for raising the young'uns, so I don't want to mess around this time. If you have chickens of good conformation and they are smart enough to get in out of the rain, I have incubators and I want to raise their children. Thanks!
