I might get some standard birds what breed do you guys think is good?
Well......I like Standards..Brahma (any color)...Buff Orpingtons are sweet birds, so are the Black/Blue/Splash....RIR girls are also nice....
BRAHMAS! The sweetest birds you will ever find. Get some lights or buffs. Mine are the best. So perfect in every way!
how good are turkens?
The turkens lay good, they look odd. Since you are in a northern state, you might have to worry about frost bite, thats where wyandottes are the best, brahmas are right behind them as far as cold hardyness and laying through the winter. We havent had turken hens lay in the winter, they stop like the plymouth rocks.
yeah we got a silver laced wyandotte from murray mcmurray as an extra chick she was very nice but she died for some reason we do not know why but she was very sweet
Speckled Sussex are a good way to go. Faverolles are calm and nice too.
The Turkens are very disease resistant, one of the hardiest in that regard. They have less feathers so I'd worry abouth the cold.
Buff Orps, Brahmas, Barred Rocks, Buckeyes are all friendly, cold hardy breeds.
I like my wyndotte girl
personally I love bantams more, but i did have standards for awhile and I absolutely fell in love with the black Australorps, they lay very well, do great in cold weather and are stunning. Mine always followed me everywhere.
