This Friday Jim Adkins, our chicken consultant, will be back on the farm selecting the 50 best females for the breeding families. The rooster in the picture has already made the cut into the top seven roosters. This week I will be in Modesto at a two day chicken breeding class put on by Jim and the sustainable poultry network. There is a tremendous amount to learn how to select the best for breeding. These events are held on each coast every year. I will be one of forty farmers attending this year’s class.
