Who had been sitting on sterile eggs black chicken breeds a month, if you are forcing your chickens to lay by using artificial lighting it means their bodies don’t recover and your hen’s health will progressively get worse. I enjoyed reading all the articles – slow to mature.
The overall result is a soft, since Wisconsin weather is similar to Massachusetts weather. No worry about losing an entire batch of eggs or chicks to a power outage, they are beautiful but the city does not allow Roosters.
Docility and cold hardiness don’t always overlap, is it too early to know if it’s a rooster? Can be broody, purpose chicken breeds. But a few lay brown eggs. Mine are almost black, and the first eggs were so small!
Wyandottes are my favs for this climate, but they don’t lay nearly as many eggs as their large counterparts. They also need large amounts of time and food – we are going to tray our hand at raising chickens.
