    chicken checklist:
    -Unique, gonna be used for 4h and I want diversity in my flock
    -lays reasonably
    -can tolerate hot and cold
    -friendly disposition, again it will be used for 4h

    this is my expectations for my next chicks. Recommendations needed on breeds that fit these standards.
    p.s. most of my current flock are standard sized

    Quote:Unique will cost you money. Most due not lay well and can only be gotten from breeders.

    Do you want large or bantam?
