    If you chicken experts were going to put together a large flock of brown egg layers that included 4 to 5 different breeds, what would they be? I am curious at what everyone would have in their "dream flock" of brown egg layers [​IMG]

    So many different breeds and so many more opinions. Here's mine:
    New Hmpshire
    White Rock
    Rhode Island Red
    Black Australorp
    Black or Red Sex-Link
    and for good measure I'd have to put in for variety of color
    Easter Eggers (blue, green, bluish-green eggs)
    Barred Holland (white Eggs) .
