I have been thinking about what breeds I'm going to get next year (aiming for 25 chickens total) and was kinda stuck. What is y'all's favorite breeds, with pretty fair production? (4-6 a week)
I have been thinking about: BCM, CCL, salmon faverolles, and banty barred rock
Not all have to be stellar producers, I am aiming for 75% layers and 25% pets and ornamentals.
personally, I will be breeding my Euskal Oiloa's (Basque) this spring, along with my OE's, EE's, and silkies! \
A lot of function, and just a little bit of fun out of that mix!
My Basque hens give me 4-6 eggs year round, as do most of my OE & EE girls.
