We started with our five barred rock girls...they are 7 weeks old now and they are awesome. A few days ago we got 3 silkie babies, who I am so excited about...two white and one black. I have 3 Ameraucana eggs on order right now, hatching may 30 or 31....so three more babies on the way. When we started out, the plan was just the 5 BRs (it was actually supposed to be 3, lol). Anyway....I already have plans to expand our coop to add a few more birds....so I'm wondering, what is your favourite chicken breed? What have been your favourite to keep? Going into this I knew zero about chickens, but I love my barred rock girls and I'm so glad we have them. Silkies and Ameraucana were on my chicken bucket list. Now I'm looking for a few more ideas. Gotta love chicken math.
