Plans for Spring Hatching

Well, we will be setting everyone up in breeding pens this weekend if all goes right which means in a few weeks we will be collecting eggs for hatching of the following breeds:

Gold Brabanter

Silver Gray Dorking

Heritage Rhode Island Red (Rose-Comb)

Silver Penciled Rocks

Cream Legbars

Seramas (frizzled and smooth)

Experimental Sex-Links (RIR rooster X Silver Gray Dorking hens – these may end up being project birds in an attempt to add mahogany color and larger size into the Dorkings or they may just end up sex-linked layers. We shall see.)

Dorking Cornish Cross (Supposed to be good meat birds, may also be sex-linked… theoretically.)

White Laced Red Cornish (When they get back to laying, all have gone broody!)
