These grow wild in our town, belonging to no one and running freely in all the neighbours' yards. They are multicross birds of various coloring and some bare necked. About 60 -70 frequent my small farm and feed on the spilt rabbit food under my cages and roost in the adjoining scrub trees and my open warehouse..The eggs ( yardie eggs) are small, averaging about 42-52 grams but are highly prized and cost the same as large free range eggs.Roosters grow to about 3 - 4.5 lbs are expensive and considered game fowl here. I am going to cross my Jersey Giants with them to produce a larger yardie bird and egg.I have placed 30 newly hatched yardies with my 98 jersey flock.They will be raised, vaccinated and crossbred alongside my Jerseys to be used as brooders for the eggs that I hatch and the cross roosters for meat. I hope to keep this thread updated.My jerseys at 1 week are averaging 75 grams and will be weighed every Tuesday. At present I put fresh cut grass every other day and 20% protein starter of which they consume about 5 kilos per day automatic waterers are installed.I collect 5 gallon buckets of broken seashells and coral from a beach 2 miles from my farm and set it in trays for all my birds.
