    Chick season is coming! I've told myself I can have no more than six new chicks this year. I'm thinking of the following; Dark Brahma, Jersey Black Giant, Speckled Sussex, Cuckoo Marans, Silver Spangled Hamburg, Black Australorp - I'd like any comments / opinions on these as they'll all be new to me.

    Thanks.

    We have Dark Brahmas and Jersey Giants, both of which despite their size are mild natured birds and a pleasure to raise. My favorite would have to be the Jersey Giant. I think its only downfall is the amount of food that they consume during the growing phase.

    Thanks. Brahmas and Giants are both on the short list for me. I'm so excited to be adding to my flock.
