    i love my rhode island reds they lay eggs so big they dont fit in the carton :) i also love my white leghorn she is my best layer never stops laying and i love my d,uccle too she is so cute
     
  3. I love my frizzle cochins, they are so adorable and sassy, and my silkies, they are sweet and so cute and fun. I prefer bantams to regular chickens just because they are cute and I love tiny eggs. And I love easter eggers for their beautiful eggs.

    Favorite Chicken Breed- Brahma- big, friendly, pretty.
    Favorite Duck Breed- Blue/Black Swede- Like the look, nice medium size.

    PS Only Goose breed I would/do own- Pilgrim- nice, auto sexing, no human aggression.
