    It's so hard to choose only one favorite breed!

    I have to go with the Blue Andalusians.

    i like all of them...

    i would say they all have beauty in them... except the naked neck or turkens... well they are just different with their neck sooo naked!!!!

    oh, also the mutts, my mom likes to have all the breeds in the same corral and when we put some eggs in the incubator, we get obviously mutts!!!

    right now we just hatched chicks that the daddy is a standard barred cochin and the mom is a black ameraucana!!! as chicks they are very cute,

    but as adults.... i doubt they will be. lol

    personally, i like to keep mine separated, to keep the breed clean...

    I have two Buckeye hens, and I think they are my favorites. I'm seriously considering getting some more next year.
