    After I sell enough of my birds I will begin a breeding project. What breed should I start with? I have Orpingtons, Sussex, Rocks, Wyandottes, Australorpes, Silkies, Brahmas, Cochins, Old English Game, Ameraucanas, Easter Eggers, Silkies, and Sebrights. I have Old English Game, Sebright, Silkie, and Brahma roosters. I am thinking Old English Game. Opinions? :D

    Oh boy....so many breeds! I personally really like Buff Brahmas and Orpingtons. But my advice is to pick what you love!

    Both of the breeds I mentioned have nice temperments and are great dual purpose breeds.....and they're so pretty too.
