    I've had a few diseases go through some birds in my flock, and i would like to have a list of disease resistant breeds so that i know what to get when i get more birds. (i will also be upping my bio-security or at least trying to).

    in my experience: black sex links, brahmas, leghorns, barred rocks, rir's, and mutts are allways very healthy birds,
    hope that helps,

    most birds kept in a clean environment would be fine as far as diseases go.
