new wives for CLB cock

Post by soufle » 31 Oct 2013, 14:07

just musing here ,but,what breed of hen could I purchase to produce some interesting coloured eggs and would they remain auto sexing ? . I did take a look at the stickys at the top of the page and broke out into a sweat.
I'm only asking as i think his current wives deserve a break and it might be fun !

The ideal answer to that is another autosexing breed that lays either white or brown eggs - the latter will give a more interesting colour. The difficulty will be to find any - Welbar is probably your best bet.
Guinea fowl & a lot of surplus poultry equipment.

thanks Henwife ,I'll keep a look out for Welbar then, it wouldnt be until next spring anyway so it gives me time to consider everything.
