I had 7 years ago 54 battery hens and 1 rooster, tried to get chickens, what a novice ( dunce) I was, decided to travel so gave them away (good move). Now I am starting again , this time with a computer and internet. I have 13 mixed pullets, 4 hens +1 rooster hi-line or isa brown 1 sussex mixed sussex rooster ? to many black spots to be sure, I longhorn rooster , Had 5 meat birds 2 tasted reel good 3 left almost to heavy to stand , plenty to choose for the table I am trying to set up some sussex to bread, and some wyandottes , white would be best. I have played on the internet and many years ago they crossed light sussex and white wyandottes to get eggs and a big meat bird, in my 3rd pen I would like to try to cross them , the wyandottes have to have no black on legs or the meat wont be white. That is after I have eaten the 13 rough necks I have Our admin suggested what would My mother in law be, the answer is red rooster but she would be to tough to eat, any way we don't eat red rooster. As I live near Merredin It is hard to get information and eggs or chicks, even having a hard time getting chicken starter mix. I had 24 fertile eggs posted and only 4 hatched again roughies , oops that is 17 birds ? So I am not happy with post , to rough on eggs. 4 to 5 weeks to go and I should get my first eggs , hi-line. I am still building the 3 rd pen not much to do to finish it.
hi Jacquie I live about 160 klm east of you in a small town called Nungarin. We brought a 1928 house 12 years ago and have been restoring it , we also have mostly 1928 furniture, a wood kitchen stove, and spend our time cooking and living the old ways, It is soooo! satisfying to eat slow cooked meals, and living simply
welcome we seem to be filling the gap up around the country Merredin ,Doodlakine, Tammin, Meckering you in Nungarin and Kellerberrin and so on a lot of the stuff your on about I have done over the last few years still grow my own meat birds and grow all my own veggies and meat so I wish you well if you need any light Sussex birds let me know I can get some started for you or RIR ,Wellsummers, Indian game , and a few others on hand I am not that far away form you Trev
Thanks Trev I would love some light sussex to start my flock , I have a incubator , so would love some eggs, I need to learn how to use it properly, chicks would be good to I have set up a brooders box which has 4 chicks in it, veggies I have always grown, meat is a bit new to me. Its a good thing she who must be obeyed lets me keep chicks inside while it is cold Ray
HI Ray I have just given away a rooster and three hens to a mate that wanted to get started as soon as they settle in and do what roos and hens do I will get a few eggs for you that may be a month so Trev
