My incubator is coming tomorrow and I haven't found anyone that wants me to hatch some duck eggs for them in Austin Texas to practice for my indian runner eggs arriving in February so I figure I can buy some chicken hatching eggs to give it a trial run. The thing is that I know if I hatch them then I'll want to keep one or two (won't be able to help myself) so I figured that I should get something that I want to have but also would be very marketable - especially the roosters as I can't keep roosters. So my choices would be exchequer leghorn or cream legbar to buy now or wait for mille fleur leghorn or blue maran. I have 3 leghorns and they are the best chickens ever for the intense heat we have here in the summer and their egg laying ability is outrageous and those exchequers are so pretty and rare - but the cream legbar I will be able to see which ones are roosters from day one and although they make less eggs they are blue pastels which will add beauty to the eggs on my countertop. Downside to the legbar is that I don't know how it will do in the heat. Even my ISA Browns suffer horribly compared to my leghorns in the triple digits. The big question is about re-homing the roosters. That's my big concern. With the legbars they will be chicks and just maybe I won't be too upset if they go early? I don't eat chicken btw so don't cull. I'm a pansy when it comes to such things. The exchequers I won't know which ones are roosters but that's a pretty rare breed. I also could wait for those marvelous mille fleur leghorns I saw but those will probably be the same issue as the exchequer leghorns and the maran - well that's because I'd like a chicken that lays that color egg some day and that blue color is so lovely. I wonder though about finding homes for roosters with the marans as that's not as rare is it? Do y'all think I will have a hard time with the rooster issue with these breeds? I would just hate to get attached to a little chicken and then find out it's a rooster and not be able to find it a good home. I can't decide. Votes please! What should I order???
