I should never have posted this, because now I am searching Welsummers, Brahma's,and Australorps, along with many other breeds. It is going to be very hard to settle on two. I may scratch the sexlinks and go with three. What do you all think about Wyandottes? I saw some silverlaced ones on craigslist and they looked pretty. Are they good birds?
Not all are like this, but my SLW was really nasty and bullied the others relentlessly. Got rid of her and peace was restored!
Beautiful birds, though.
If I had to pick any two, I'd go with a sultan hen (very docile and beautiful, but not fantastic layers) and another OEGB. Not sure what pattern, though, they are all beautiful.
Brahmas are a great flock addition, but really poor layers. Eye candy, just like sultans.
Good luck finding a good breed for you!
Edit: if price were not a concern, probably isabelle leghorn, ayam cemani, la fleche, or.... (Oh wait, you said 2.)
