Some hawks migrate to this area and stay the winter as long as there is food source available.
I have a mixed flock for egg production. It consists of Wheaten Marans, Chanteclers, Buckeyes, EE. I also have a Partridge Chantecler flock that is for fun breeding projects. In addition to the Partridge rooster, I also have a White and a Buff both Chanteclers.
I also have 3 bantams which are remnants of previous breeding projects. Hens are Golden Campine and Citron Hamburg, and the rooster is a Gold Sebright.
I am tempted to add birds in the spring for various reasons. I don't have any layers of large white eggs and only one which lays an olive large egg. I want some hens that lay large white eggs and some that lay large blue eggs. Anyone have suggestions?
I like bantams just for the entertainment and ornamental aspects, as most do not lay a very large egg. Since eye candy is a consideration for me, I believe I will get trios or quads of Wheaten, Blue Wheaten and White Ameraucanas just for the fun in working with them.
