We are trying to determine which chicken breed we would like to have for a dual purpose bird. Any ideas? So far we are looking at the silver laced wyandottes, buff orphingtons or maybe even the rhode island reds. We only want our own personal flock...maybe just a dozen hens and a rooster. We just want the best, largest eggs and best largest meat. We wont use them for meat if the economy doesnt go to super pot.
