From a homestead/ sustainability view... Just wondering what everyone likes to raise? I like "pure breeds" because it give me the ability to not have to rely on outside inputs for my birds and close the circle a little more. I have some black australorps right now and they are ok. I am thinking about getting a different breed this fall though. Just looking for opinions of any sort. General desires are good foragers, broody enough to reproduce, good dual purpose breed, cold hardy, not people agressive since i have 2 kids. I have always liked barred rocks, RIR except i hear the boys are mean sometimes. A few others have recommended buckeyes, dominiques, delewares. Just curious what you all like and keep.
