BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS

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 REASON!

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

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 LYING SELLERS 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 AT THE TOP WILL LAY ABOUT 250 EGGS PER YEAR OR MORE IN MOST CASES. CLICK HERE

THE NEW HAMPSHIRE RED AT THE BOTTOM IS MORE OF A MEAT BIRD AND WILL ONLY LAY ABOUT 200 EGGS PER YEAR. IT ALSO EATS MORE SINCE IT IS A LITTLE LARGER. CLICK HERE

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

MY POINT IS…IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CHICKEN FOR EGG PRODUCTION ONLY, 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!!!

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

BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS
HERE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE…THIS IS A BLACK COPPER MARAN ROOSTER ON A CLOCK BEING SOLD AS A RHODE ISLAND RED BY SOMEONE WHO DON’T KNOW!!!

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

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!

SOME PEOPLE LIKE BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS

I HAVE LOTS OF FRIENDS WHO LIKE…AND EVEN RAISE BARNYARD MIX BECAUSE THEY LIKE THE ODD COLORS AND DIFFERENT SHAPES/SIZES THEY GET, BUT THEY STILL HAVE THE PARENT BIRDS ON SITE!

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

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.

TO ME THE BARNYARD MIX CHICKENS RULE APPLIES TO ALMOST ANY FARM ANIMAL OR BIRD…SOME ARE BRED FOR MEAT AND SOME FOR FOOD PRODUCTION LIKE EGGS OR MILK AND DIFFERENT BREEDS OF GOATS OR COWS GIVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MILK WHICH CONTAIN DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF BUTTER FAT SO SOME ARE FOR MILK TO DRINK AND SOME ARE FOR MILK TO MAKE CHEESE OR BUTTER…WELCOME TO FARMING! IT’S A LOT MORE COMPLEX THAN JOE BIDEN SAYS IT IS!!!
