Hi I’m Rachel , I’m in the UK an I’m new to breeding Cochins , currently I’m breeding large blacks an in the foreseeable future want to breed blues an to show them , any tips for someone starting out? (Previously have worked with just the standard hybrid laying hen so this is all new to me )
Start with the best stock you can find. Saves a lot of time and $. Know what you will do with your culls because we all make culls and with limited space and budget culls have to go when they are determined to be culls. Have fun and be critical of your own stock. Breed to your Standard.
