i have had chickens for a while and im completely hooked. i love their colors and their diversity. i just completely redid my chicken coop and yard and now im starting all over again, just keeping two of my last flock. (and snowy, my two favorite broodys) i want to get new birds eventualy, and cant decide what to get. i was going to get an assortment but was afraid i would get somethng that wasnt cold hardy eough to waithstand the cold and wet of the pacific northwest, and was wondering if any one had a spiecle favorite breed that they have had good experiences with. i want a friendly docile breed because i want to try showing them at our county fair.
