    Hey. I have had chickens for 2 years and I am ready to add some more to my flock. I currently have 3. I would like to add some more to my flock. I am looking to add two or three more. I would like some breeds to add. I currently have a red star, black star,and easter egger. I am looking to have a more diverse egg color in my basket as del. Also we want to start with chicks. We also would like to have at least one friendly one.
    Thanks[​IMG]
    Also no exotic breeds . Are local feed store has just the basic chicken breeds.
