I’ve been busy at work establishing new breeds and varieties, and some are very long term projects. Some breeds I plan on getting eventually, but don’t have yet.
I’ve increased my numbers of the very dark egg Black Copper Marans, and the Wheatens. I’m also setting up new matings to produce Olive Eggers. These will all be available this coming fall, but I have more I’m working on, some of which will be available this fall, some not until Spring 2015, and a few I may not release for sale for a year or more, depending on how well I can get them established.
Here’s what I have on hand that I’m working on:
In addition to the aforementioned, I have:
Black (self black, not black copper)
Black-Tailed Buff (yes, I already had some, but I have dark egg ones now)
And also the following project varieties:
A self-sustaining broiler project (hoping for the ideal homestead broiler that can be kept and bred without depending on hatchery purchases every year).
PLANNING TO HAVE SOONER THAN LATER
