I will advise you to get more local chickens, if indeed you want to use them for hatching.

Waooo, I love this. I have similar farm too, but I don't have local hen except for one that was hatched by my frizzle noiler, a local roster crossed her.
I have been breeding and making money from it though not big money but I enjoy watching them grow.
I sold all my turkey and left one, she has been laying for few weeks now, she will go broody in few days or week, I intend giving her frizzle noiler eggs to hatch.
I have 3 naked neck too, but I don't like the female, it's too small and not mesty like the male, I ate one of the male and sold one, I only have the female remaining, I don't plan to harched it eggs again, cos I have 2 that I hatched and I'm not happy with their growth.
But I still have 5 frizzle feather noiler, their mother and the children, I have sold their father, but the children are now older and crossing thehens among them and their mother, one has started laying including the mother. Their mother usually go broody and hatch her eggs herself

I will share pictures. The males are very big and active, but the female naked neck is not as big as normal noiler
Re: BackYard Farming: My Turkey, Noiler And Guinea Fowl Birds & Goats by Redomi(m): 11:32am On Jan 27, 2023
But for best result, I will advise you feed your livestocks very well. Free ranging won't give you the result you want.
For example, my chicken and turkey will start laying another clutch of eggs 3 weeks after hatching, but if they are on free range, that won't happen

2. Another baby naked neck, 5weeks old
3. One of the baby frizzle about to start laying
4. Frizzle roster, already crossing

Re: BackYard Farming: My Turkey, Noiler And Guinea Fowl Birds & Goats by Redomi(m): 11:47am On Jan 27, 2023
1. White from the frizzle mother too, but not frizzle like other, it is somehow sizzle feather
2. Frizzle mother layed her eggs too, but it was crossed by a local roster,I don't know why the colour is black cos the roster that cross her is not white.
3. Egg layers, one of the baby from the frizzle
4. Eggs layed so far, all fertile eggs, I don chop two from the eggs

Please, how do you know fertile eggs? Are their yolks usually tainted with blood?

1. When I have a mature roster among my birds.

2. When I broke an egg, there is this ring form you notice among the white/natural colour, not the yellow yolk o

This is classical and awesome

I actually do feed my chickens and turkeys morning and evening very well with feeds. After that, I release them to play around till evening when I locked them up again (that's what I meant by free range.)

So do you actually sell your chickens out or you are rearing just for personal consumption

One of my adult boiler started laying 5 days ago. I took 2 out of the eggs today (that's one of the beauty of boiler too, {egg production}

waooo, that's lovely, they will surely lay fertile eggs if there is a roster around to cross them.
I'm also looking forward to one day cross a broiler hen with a noiler roster.
Yes I sell some and sometimes I eat some, but I sell most, I only eat few.

Will the rooster be able to cross it, and more so, we know boiler are not good at laying eggs.

Sure a noiler hen will surely cross a broiler hen, because the noiler roster weight won't be too much for the broiler hen to withstand, secondly broilers can lay eggs like other birds too, but most of us couldn't rear broiler for 4-5 months because if properly fed, it will be too big and not able to walk properly

This is the part I thought would be an obstacle.

then keep some female broiler and feed them just once a day for 4-5 months, they will surely lay and and their weight will be minimal. Don't forget to feed them grower feed for just once a day
