Well I decided on the chickens. One full box of 100 red broilers for meat. One quarter box of 25 pullets for eggs. 11 Gold Campines, 4 Spangled Russian Orloffs, 4 Silver Grey Dorkings, 3 Anconas and 3 Welsummers. I’ve requested them for the last week in May. They should be hatched 27 May and arrive here on the 28th or 29th. That’s after primary lambing and also after the weather is nice. We’ll separate the 2 groups and brood them in different pens. We’ve found the broilers grow too fast and cause problems for the much smaller egg chickens.
