We can only have 6 chickens, so ultimately we'll only get to keep 2 of the new chicks we get (we're replacing the 2 girls we adopted last fall since one of them is super bossy and aggressive and we feel we should introduce 2 new ones rather than 1 if we do this.) But we figure we'll get 3 or 4 chicks to cover the roo-possibility issue, and then just keep our 2 favorites. here are the criteria: Bears confinement well Friendly, docile, non-aggressive Lays lots of eggs Prefer rare/unusual or heritage breed Standard-size chicken Pretty to look at Interesting colored eggs a plus!! Here's what we're considering: Easter Egger/ Ameraucana (hatchery) since we love the blue eggs of the girl we'll be losing. Partridge Rock Gold Laced Wyandotte Buff Orpington Rhode Island Red Welsumer What the local feed stores can order will matter here, so probably nothing TOO rare/unusual. WE'll have already: Black Australorp (), SLW, Barred Rock, Cinnamon Queen. Thanks everyone!!
