Well well well. Looks like I have a rock!
I mean shot.
I know country raised folks that haven't had much luck. Weather or not they do crack , I have no idea.
His avatar made me do it, or maybe it was the DEVIL in me..
The meatbird flock is such that we can sell a pair or possible trio.. Hatch your own food, for the low price of $250.00 a pair or $350.00 for the trio..
The 10 meat bird hens are laying up a storm even in this weather about 8 eggs a day.. The hens are coming in at 8 plus lbs.. HEAVY, roosters over 12 lbs.. Compare to your dual purpose birds.. Egg's are currently not fertile but as days warm they should become fertile.. As soon as I candle fertile eggs we'll be good to go. If any good members here @Cowcatcher @swampratt @THAT Gurl want eggs to hatch I'll fix ya'll up for 2 bucks a dozen.. I wrote up my best sales pitch and put it on CL..
Have you hatched these from parent birds to be sure they produce a better dual purpose bird and are self sustaining? A plain jane dual purpose bird is really good enough for me as a meat bird. Cooking those jumbos are a pain to get evenly cooked. I wind up cutting them up into smaller portions. But I would be willing to get some hatching eggs.
I will keep that in mind!! Thanks!!
No, I haven't gotten gen 2 yet, I suspect the cold has the roos non fertile as yet.. Soon as I candle some veins I'll load up the bator.. Will be raising some for our freezer so we'll know if they perform as well as the parents..
I took the 1st 19 I had and put them in compost and upon breaking them found they were fertile so now going to put a load in the incubator Sunday, somewhere between 48-60.. The guys at work want fresh chicken so we'll have a small butcher party and those partaking will haul home chicken that they dispatched and cleaned themselves.. So by end of May we'll have results to share..
49 chicks hatched Sun-Mon so we'll see how the 2nd gen of meaties perform.. Providing feed doesn't hit $100 a bag in the next 8-10 weeks.. In the brooder at present and should be ready to move into the tractors by mid April..
