We are about 3 days away from hatching another 42 chicks here at BamaHomestead. We have a mix of silkies, black polish top hats, buff orpingtons and a red cinnamon mutt, as I like to call them. We try to keep a continuous cycle of chickens hatching both to sell and supply our family with meat.
As you can see, its time to take out the auto turner!
I’ve promised a good friend of mine a few of these. We are excited about incorporating buffs into our mix as they are a great dual purpose bird, both large eggs and get quite large providing a meaty dinner. We will definitely check back with you on how they go!
