Bantam versions of dual-purpose/layer breeds would be nice, or maybe a small standard laying breed. All the bantams I've seen have been cochins, silkies, or OEGB (we picked up a couple!), and I'd like a useful kind of little chicken (if those exist!). BF wants also a "cool looking" and preferably blue but not weird (silkies, frizzles, turkens ) bird. Kinda specific but also pretty vague, but we're still pretty new to chickens and doing research.
I am going to be hatching some U of A blues(smaller standard breed) crossed to Leghorn/Ameraucana project birds. I may have more blues than I plan to keep because of how many are developing right now. They'd be straight run though so mix of boys and girls. They will all be blue egg layers.
