Dual Purpose Hens of Any Breed

Post by PigeonManNick » Thu Mar 22, 2018 8:30 pm

Hello everyone, I'm looking for for any large breed dual purpose chicken. We usually order laying hens from the local hatcheries but this year we would like to try something larger. Egg production is not our main concern, just looking for a large sized breed to raise.Looking for a few hens, and one rooster. Let me know if you have anything available, Thanks!

Hiya

you might to see if you can find jersey giants-they're bigger and while they do eggs they do dress out as a nice big bird.

I agree...however, they do eat a LOT mine would be the first one to come running for anything. They are nice birds.
