BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS-JUST SAY NO

WHY I DON’T LIKE BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS OR FARM ANIMALS

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
PURE BRED HERITAGE BREED RHODE ISLAND RED ROOSTER

FIRST OF ALL, THE LARGEST NUMBER OF ANIMALS THAT ARE ENDANGERED OR EXTINCT IS FARM ANIMALS! THAT SOUNDS IMPOSSIBLE DON’T IT? BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS AND OTHER ANIMALS IS THE NUMBER ONE REASON WHY!

LET ME EXPLAIN! SCIENTIST, FARMERS AND BACKYARD BREEDERS ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO CROSS BREED SOME KIND OF NEW HYBRID OR BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS OR FARM ANIMALS. THEY NEVER SEEM TO SAVE THE ORIGINAL BREED STOCK SO IT BECOMES EXTINCT! THIS IS A VERY SAD THING TO ME.

I’M GOING TO SAY THIS ABOUT BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS IN GENERAL. WHEN FARMERS AND BACKYARD BREEDER HAVE ADS FOR BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS, DUCKS OR WHATEVER, THEY USUALLY HAVE SEVERAL BREEDS RUNNING AROUND AND MIXING SO YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU’RE GETTING! INTENTIONAL HYBRID MIXES ARE A DIFFERENT STORY ALL TOGETHER AND ARE BRED FOR SPECIFIC USES IN MOST CASES.

AS THIS PICTURE SHOWS PUREBRED MALLARD DUCKS FLYING AWAY IN AUTUM UNLESS YOU TRIM THEIR WING FEATHERS! I’LL TALK ABOUT DUCKS AND ME FIRST!

AT OLD BIDDY HATCHERY WE INTENTIONALLY CROSS BREED BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS! NOT REALLY, OURS ARE HYBRIDS WITH A SPECIFIC PORPUSE IN MIND!!!

KINDA SOUNDS LIKE I’M BEING A HYPOCRITE DON’T IT? LET ME EXPLAIN WHY I THINK IN SOME CASES CROSS BREEDING IS NEEDED…OLD BIDDY HATCHERY CROSS BREEDS FOR CERTAIN TRAITS WHEN WE WANT/NEED A SPECIAL TYPE OF BIRD/ANIMAL.

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
WHEN YOU SEE AN AD FOR BARNYARD MIX, THIS IS USUALLY WHERE THE CHICKS COME FROM. SO, WHAT WILL YOU GET?

I DON’T ALLOW SEVERAL BREEDS TO ROAM AND BREED TOGETHER. ALL OUR CROSSES HAVE A PORPUSE AND ARE CAREFULLY SELECTED FOR THE INTENDED USE IT IS BEING BRED FOR! WE CREATE HYBRIDS INSTEAD OF A MULTIFLOCK MIXED UP MESS.

WE KEEP THE PURE HERITAGE BREED STOCK FOR FUTURE USE THOUGH. OLD BIDDY HATCHERY WILL NEVER BREED OUT OUR HERITAGE BREEDS TO EXTINCTION FOR ANY HYBRID CROSSES. WE MAY BREED HERITAGE BREED STOCK TO GET HYBRIDS FOR SPECIAL USES, BUT, WE DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO PERSERVE THE ORIGNAL HERITAGE BREEDS FOR THE FUTURE OF FARMING AND FUTURE GENERATIONS!!!

Feral Cayuga duck | Anas platyrhynchos | Spinus Nature ...
THE CAYUGA DUCK IS A BEAUTIFUL DUCK. IT IS JUST AS GOOD AS THE MALLARD FOR A POND, BUT AGAIN…IT FLYS AWAY. I’M WORKING ON A CROSS WITH THESE TOO! THAT’S HOW WE LEARN! I JUST WISH PEOPLE WOULD KEEP THE ORIGINAL BREEDS LIKE I DO!

THE NEED FOR CROSS BREEDING IS REAL AT TIMES

EXAMPLE; I HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WANTING A POND DUCK FOR THEIR FARM POND. RIGHT NOW THE BEST DUCK FOR THAT IS A MALLARD OR A CAYUGA. MALLARDS AND CAYUGAS ROOST ON THE WATER WHERE PREDITORS CAN’T GET TO THEM BUT THEY FLY AWAY IN THE FALL USUALLY NEVER TO RETURN!

WE’RE TRYING CROSSES TO KEEP THEM ROOSTING ON THE WATER BUT REMOVING THE FLY-AWAY TRAITS SO FARMERS AND HOMEOWNERS CAN KEEP THEM AS PETS FOR YEARS. AGAIN, I KEEP ALL MY PURE MALLARD AND CAYUGA BREED STOCK AND JUST SELL THE HYBRID DUCKLINGS TO SEE IF THEY WILL DO WHAT WE NEED AND WANT FOR THE FARMER OR HOME OWNER. I ALSO KEEP SOME TO STUDY AND LEARN FROM MYSELF!

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
NOT A RHODE ISLAND RED ROOSTER BUT IS BEING ADVERTISED AS ONE SO IT IS DECEIVING TO ANYONE WHO DOESN’T KNOW! DO YOUR HOMEWORK SO YOU DON’T GET CHEATED BY LIARS OR BACKYARD BREEDERS WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE!!! THIS IS ACTUALLY A NEW HAMPSHIRE RED!!!

SOME DIFFERENCES IN PURE BRED AND BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS

THE HERITAGE BREED RHODE ISLAND RED WILL LAY ABOUT 250 EGGS PER YEAR OR MORE IN MOST CASES. CLICK HERE

THE NEW HAMPSHIRE RED IS MORE OF A MEAT BIRD AND WILL ONLY LAY ABOUT 200 EGGS PER YEAR. IT ALSO EATS MORE SINCE IT IS LARGER (YOUR EGG COST IS HIGER). CLICK HERE

BOTH ARE CONCIDERED DUAL PURPOSE BIRDS BY MOST CHICKEN PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY ARE LARGE ENOUGH TO BE GOOD MEAT BIRDS AND STILL LAY A GOOD AMOUNT OF EGGS FOR YOUR FAMILY. MANY PEOPLE HATCH THEIR OWN AND USE THE HENS FOR EGGS AS WELL AS THE ROOSTERS FOR MEAT SINCE THEY GET ABOUT 2-3 POUNDS HEAVER THAN THE HENS.

I DON’T THINK BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS PERFORM AS WELL AS PURE BREEDS DO!

MY POINT IS…IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CHICKEN FOR EGG PRODUCTION, YOU NEED TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCES IN THE NUMBER AND SIZE OF THE EGGS THEY WILL LAY AND THE DIFFERENCES IN FEED COST TO PRODUCE THE EGGS. AGAIN!!! BUYER BEWARE AND EDUCATED!!!

THE BEST LAYER YOU CAN GET CROSSED WITH A CORNISH THAT ONLY LAYS ABOUT 150 EGGS PER YEAR ISN’T GOING TO GIVE YOU A GOOD EGG TO FEED RATIO SO LEARN YOUR BREEDS AND THEN DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT! EGGS, MEAT OR BOTH?

THERE ARE SOME GOOD DUAL PURPOSE BREEDS OUT THERE AND MANY TIMES YOU MAY WANT TO KEEP TWO OR THREE BREEDS FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES. YOU AND YOU ALONE CAN MAKE THESE DECISIONS, SO BE EDUCATED AND ALSO KNOW THAT DIFFERENT BIRDS NEED DIFFERENT FEEDS TO ACHIEVE CERTAIN GOALS. 

DON’T BUY CHICKENS JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE PRETTY OR CUTE. ASK YOURSELF WHAT DO YOU WANT A CHICKEN TO DO FOR YOU?

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
This is shown in a popular encyclopedia as a Rhode Island Red but it’s a cross breed of some kind. It’s not a Rhode Island Red! Probably a New Hampshire Red/Rhode Island Red cross. Someone who didn’t know their breeds put this in a book for people to read and believe for the truth BUT IT’S NOT TRUE!!!

ANY BARNYARD MIX ANIMAL/BIRD

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
WE SELL PURE BRED DUCKLINGS TOO!!!

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS, DUCKS, GUINEAS OR ANYTHING ELSE IS A BAD IDEA, BECAUSE IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR LAYING HENS AND GET SOMETHING CROSSED WITH A MEAT CHICKEN THEY WILL NOT BE GOOD EGG LAYERS. IF YOU WANT MEAT BIRDS AND GET SOMETHING CROSSED WITH A BANTAM OR A WHITE LEGHORN THEY WILL BE SMALL BIRDS…NOT MUCH MEAT. EITHER WAY, BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS IS KIND OF A WASTE OF TIME, FEED AND MONEY TO ME!!!

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
PURE BRED RHODE ISLAND RED HEN. DARK BRICK RED WITH BLACK TIPS ON TAIL AND YELLOW LEGS

I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME TO BUY LOCAL SO THEY CAN LOOK AT THE PARENT BIRDS OR ANIMALS THEY WISH TO BUY. IF THE SELLER DOESN’T HAVE THE PARENTS ON SITE THEN THEY PROBABLY BOUGHT THE BABIES FROM SOMEONE OR ORDERED THEM FROM SOMEWHERE AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE THEY COME FROM OR WHAT YOU’RE GETTING!!! BEWARE OF SELLERS WHO ARE SELLING SOME OTHER PERSON’S PRODUCT!!!

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
HERITAGE BREED DOMINIQUE ROOSTER
BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
PLYMOUTH BARRED ROCK ROOSTER.

LEARN YOU CHICKEN BREEDS AND THEIR TRAITS WELL!

I’M GOING TO USE THE TWO PICTURES ABOVE TO CHECK YOUR ABILITY TO SEE THE SOMETIMES VERY SUBTLE DIFFERENCES IN TWO SIMILAR BREEDS READ THIS TO SEE THE SIMILARITIES AND WHY. CLICK HERE

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
PURE BRED DOMINQUE HEN

THANKS TO THE INTRODUCTION OF THE BARRED ROCK THE DOMINIQUE ALMOST BECAME AN EXTINCT BREED AND IS STILL HARD TO FIND TODAY!

THE FIRST DIFFERENCE (AND THE MOST NOTICEABLE) IS THE DIFFERENT SIZE COMBS. SECOND IS THE DIFFERENT SIZE OF THE BODY, WHICH IS HARDER TO SEE UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. THIRD THE BARRING PATTERN IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT AND THE BARRED ROCK IS A LITTLE LIGHTER IN COLOR. LIKE I SAID…YOU WILL NEED TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK IF YOU WANT REAL PURE BRED STOCK! EVEN THOUGH ALMOST EXTINCT TODAY THE DOMINQUE IS THOUGHT TO BE AMERICA’S FIRST DOMESTIC CHICKEN BREED. SO SAD IT’S ALMOST GONE! 

SOME PEOPLE LIKE BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS

BARNYARD MIX
A FLOCK OF PURE BRED AMERICAN PEKIN DUCKS, AMERICA’S CHOICE FOR LARGE MEAT DUCKS AND PETS!!!

I HAVE LOTS OF FRIENDS WHO LIKE…AND RAISE BARNYARD MIX BECAUSE THEY LIKE THE ODD COLORS AND DIFFERENT SHAPES/SIZES THEY GET.

NOW, IF THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT, THEN BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS ARE GOOD FOR YOU! I LIKE GOOD LAYING LAYERS AND PLUMP JUICY MEAT BIRDS SO I STICK TO PURE BREEDS.

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
PUREBRED ADULT KAHKI CAMPBELL DUCKS.

SAME WITH DUCKS, THE KHAKI CAMPBELL IS A SMALLER DUCK THAT LAYS A LOT OF EGGS AND THE PEKIN IS A LARGER MEAT DUCK WHO LAYS ABOUT HALF AS MANY EGGS AS A KHAKI CAMPBELL. DO YOU WANT EGGS OR MEAT?

TO ME THE BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS RULE APPLIES TO ALMOST ANY FARM ANIMAL OR BIRD…SOME ARE BRED FOR MEAT. SOME FOR FOOD PRODUCTION LIKE EGGS OR MILK. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT AND BUY BIRDS/ANIMALS FOR THAT PURPOSE!

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
THIS IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE BREED OF MILK COW. THE JERSEY. IT’S A SMALLER BREED THAT GIVES A LOT OF MILK THAT IS HIGH IN BUTTER FAT. I LOVE THE CREAM AND THE BUTTER! I KNOW IT’S BAD FOR CHOLESTEROL, BUT SOMETHING’S GOT TO KILL ME! MIGHT AS WELL DIE FULL AND HAPPY!

FOR INSTANCE, DIFFERENT BREEDS OF GOATS OR COWS GIVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MILK WHICH CONTAIN DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF BUTTER FAT. SOME ARE FOR MILK TO DRINK AND SOME ARE FOR MILK TO MAKE CHEESE OR BUTTER.

SAME WITH HOGS, SOME BREEDS ARE LARGER THAN OTHERS AND PRODUCE MORE MEAT, SOME ARE SMALLER AND USED FOR WHOLE HOG PIT COOKING.

WELCOME TO FARMING!!! IT’S A LOT MORE COMPLEX THAN JOE BIDEN SAYS IT IS!!!
