Amber: This year?..LOL....I've been impressed with my Wyandottes. Good looking Body shape. Laying Longevity. My SLW is a bit persnickety though (drawback). They also have the right comb type for our region. The EE's are perfect for my climate too and I love the blue in my egg carton. But the laying longevity on those birds is unimpressive. I got a Buckeye this past spring. I like her...but she's not thrifty on the feed. She eats like a horse. (Dual purpose bird) Verdict is still out on her as she's just come into POL. I'll see how she does on egg production before I put in my verdict on her. Black Australorp--although a single comb. Super kind on the roost. Docile yet flighty enough for free ranging. Loves her greens and very thrifty on feed. Good layer. Wyandottes, so far.
