After a fairly long hiatus, it is back to hatching and rearing chickens for meat. Fertility was pretty low this time around.  So far only 8 chicks have hatched from about 2 dozen eggs.  They are crossbreds.  I have moved on from breeding and showing pure breeds and rare breeds, and find now, my interests lie in providing a meaty, tasty bird for the table.  These current chicks are Silver Grey Dorking crossed with Buff Cochin among other things 🙂
