What do peeps think?
Im looking at breeds of chickens to order for the spring but need help with some breeds if you've had any of the following let me know your thoughts on them!

So, I'm learning more about ducks every day. I am looking into getting ducks in a few years.
I need to choose breeds, though. I don't want meat ducks, and eggs aren't necessary but I'm not against them. The main reason I might keep ducks is because I think they will be nice pets to keep around...
I have 13 chickens. 2 of the hens, I have no idea of their breed.

I've been bitten by the bug now and as my fine, feathery friends are growing up nicely, I'm already making plans for the Spring. These plans are looking like they're going to include quail. So, all you quail-lovers, tell me a few things...
What are your favorite breeds and why?
I'm new to all this and I thought we had everyone figured out. My hens just started laying, so it's very exciting for me.
So I'm looking up which eggs go with which hen, color wise. I realize that my black langshan hasnt laid any eggs.
My dad has been saying for a while that Shadow was a boy but...

so, after four of my babies passed, I’d like to get more to keep my other four company. I have three sapphire gems and one Brahma rooster (I think he’s a rooster anyway). I’d like to get some Easter Eggers and maybe some other cool breeds. I love all different kinds of chickens and colorful...

Ok. I have one local farm store I like for chicks but they of course carry only in spring for a short while.
I would like to order some in the year other than during spring for one month lol.
I have heard many hatchery names here on the site. I would like to know who you use and why. And where...
First, I'm on mobile so apologies if the format looks wonky.
I just picked up five new birds yesterday. The guys I got them from had probably a hundred young birds, bantam and LF, running around the yard. They said the birds were all roughly the same age, hatched from March through...
Hey everyone! This thread is for all who want to know the color of certain breeds’ eggs. Feel free to post pics of your prettiest eggs alongside the chicken breed that laid them. Maybe we’ll see some pink eggs!
Have fun! (:
This egg is from my Ameraucana hen, Cocoa.
Hi, I'm Aya and I have 5 bantams. I don't know all of the breeds, but I know one is a silkie (so if anyone wants to help me ID the rest I would really appreciate it). My profile pic is one that turned out to be a rooster, his name is 2Peck and he's my favorite. I am not technically allowed to...
