I love my speckled Sussex. What a sweet, curious breed!
If you could add two chickens to your backyard flock what would they be? - Page 5

Two? We can add only two??? Let's see. Maybe two more California greys. Mine haven't stopped laying since they started and there are so many crosses you can make with them. BUT are you sure two is the limit we can add for this forum??? OK, maybe a true Ameraucana to see if there is a difference in the color between my Americanas or Easter Egg colors and a black sex link to cross me over to the dark side. Not counting bantams which are pets, I have all heritage breeds or mixes thereof so I could see the difference in number of eggs and perhaps egg size between a production bird and my heritage birds But with some of my layers I doubt that. My EE eggs are huge. Mebbe you could up the number to more than two since I did want to try a few austrolorps, too.......

I currently have favorelles, but am thinking domininecker if I can find one at our local auction, hearty and good layers. but from what I understand favorelles are kinda needy and gentle so don't want to stress them out with bigger birds. yard is plenty big enough for them all but, who knows. we'll see. if not domineckers, then just regular ole' leghorns.
