    Hey guys! This is the third time I've asked this, sorry just started using this site! I'm looking for suggestions for new breeds. I want some really colorful, fun to look at chickens. Egg color isn't so important but I would like good egg productivity. Also if anyone can direct me to some hatcheries that ship here, I'm near East mesa, I would be eternally grateful! :D

    Do you have feed store near you, They should have baby chicks for sell, My Buff orpington and Barred rock are excellent layers, and they are pretty birds!

    The feed stores have a limited selection, like two breeds. :( I want some blues and greens and bright shiny Colors. A rainbow flock I guess you would say! :D I want a rooster so I'm thinking maybe he will be my colored one. Know of any breeds popular for producing tame roos?
