Blue Isbar

Blue Isbar

“Blue Isbars are a breed developed in the 50-60’s by a monk by the name of Martin  Silverudd. He wasn’t able to complete auto sexing of this color, as planned, before he died. But even without the auto sexing, this breed developed into a good and beautiful layer.  Greenfire Farm imported them in 2011 from Sweden.    Greenfire Farms first imports were reported to have immune...” --gootziecat

Booted

Booted

“My Porcelin Booted Bantams are adorable! My rooster is very docile and never fought with the LF roosters. But we had to move the pair because he got picked on too much. They will make good lap birds if you handle them young. ” --Phoenix Farms

Brabanter

Brabanter

“ I have had the pleasure of having a flock of Brabanters for several years now. I can not say enough good things about these intelligent chickens. Not one has fallen ill on me. Some hens are four years old and still laying well. Very friendly and follow me throughout the day when I am doing chores. They keep a great look out for predators and have the smarts to get away. They forage on the...” --showmesilkies

Brahma

Brahma

“ If I were starting my flock over, I'd consider having all Brahmas. I just love these birds. They are beautiful, calm and peaceful and have been good layers for me. I love that they are big girls, and their feathered feet. Mine are big diggers and like to spend afternoons wallowing in dust baths. They are a delight. ” --LAChickens

Brahma - Bantam

Brahma - Bantam

“ These were one of the first chickens I owned. I got them from Eagle's Nest hatchery, and they are wonderful little birds. They are full of personality, and my rooster is a gentleman, both to me and his ladies. They are shy compared to my Polish, but they are still willing to stand in your way and cluck at you. I'm glad I chose bantam buff Brahmas for some of my first chickens! The performed...” --Chic_girl

Bredas

Bredas

“The Breda hen is calm, docile, and somewhat timid at the same time.  They are rather social, and walk right up to us hoping for treats and pets.  But, they can be shy with strangers, and will spook easier then most dual-purpose breeds.  In a mixed flock, the hens are low on the pecking order and may get bullied.  If bullied, hens tend to be more reserved, and can become...” --RhodeRunner

British Tailed Araucana

British Tailed Araucana

“ I have a Lavender Araucana that has tail feathers. I really really love this breed. Our girl, Loca, is named because she is "loco" (crazy). She is just the quirkiest animal I have ever owned. She is a fantastic layer, we get 5-6 eggs a week from her and when she is not covered in mud she is a very unique and interesting looking bird. She is also not flighty whatsoever, I have never seen...” --snusnu95

Buckeye

Buckeye

“The best rooster I've had was a Buckeye. In the brooder they always run to my hand to see what was going on, and in the coop they were always the first ones out. I had a couple and they both turned out to be roosters so I gave one to my mom and it was the same for her - great reviews! My Buckeye would always run up to me to see what food scraps I was bringing him so he could distribute to...” --Barred4Life

California Grey

California Grey

“I chose California Greys because they lay a white egg and I wanted to add white eggs to my basket.  They also have a reputation as a less flighty breed than most other white egg layers and it is somewhat important to me to have a friendly flock.   Of my current brood of chicks the CA Greys have distinguished themselves as the most curious and friendly in my mixed flock of babies. ...” --tommysgirl
