I am thinking I want to get B/B/S Ameraucanas. I have been partial to Lavender and Blue colors for several years. I used to have a mix of the following types: Lavender Orpingtons, Buff Orpingtons, OEGB, Silkies, Black Australorps, Barred Rocks, Japanese Bantam, Mille Fleur, Pekin ducks, guineas of all colors and a white peacock. I am sure I missed a breed or two, but it was hard to focus on breeding with so many different ones and I only had 4 pens and didn't want mixed breeds so I got rid of them all and chose to raise four breeds. Buff Orps, guineas, ducks, and silkies. I love Orpingtons because they are very sweet natured and I don't like mean chickens, but I read that the Ameraucanas are gentle. I considered B/B/S Orps too though.
