    Does anyone know of any good breeds.I have buffs,RIR,barred but does anybody have any good breeds. Doesn't have to be awesome or beautiful just has to be kinda of a good egg layer breed or like a buff or pretty like a barred or maybe put your good breed names on here................

    If you are looking for eggs you can't beat the sex links. I have 4 which I believe are the golden comets. They are friendly girls and lay like crazy. The only thing I do not like about them is that they are not very accepting of other birds unless they look exactly like them or they were raised with them. A "good" breed is determined by what you are looking for and what you want them to do. I.E. Lay eggs, brood chicks, just be nice to look at, dual purpose(meat and eggs), etc.

    I think the breeds you have are good. I have RIR's that lay like crazy. I also have barred rocks that are very friendly even my roos. I have Black Australorps that are very laid back 2 Naked Necks that are just beyond cute. and 6 barnyard mixes that are extremely pretty. I also have a Delaware roo he is a baby kinda tempermentle he has to go to a new home cant have too many roosters.

    I agree, you can't get a better brown egg layer than a RIR. For beauty and utility I love Speckled Sussex and Silver Laced Wyandottes.
