    and one of the rules of this place is that we don't discuss illegal activity.

    What do you want chickens for? Eggs? Meat? There are different breeds for each. Do you have freezing cold winters, or hot hOT summers? Different breeds for each, too. Let us know your needs and someone can point you to a place to help narrow donw your breed list.

    A great all around bird for egg laying, the table and they are great mothers is the Wyandott. They are also beautiful birds.
