    I'd just like to know which kind of chicken/duck/turkey etc. breed is your favorite and why. No poll included. Sorry. I'm just really bored[​IMG]
    My favorite would be the RIR or the Serama bantam. I have never had a serama but they're just so TINY!!!! And Silkies. Don't forget those living floofballs (never had one either).

    I would say barred rock, because they are friendly and really pretty

    My absolute favourite breed is the Welsh Harlequin- so beautiful, friendly, productive and tame! I've currently got 10, and have a lot more eggs going into the Brinsea this week :D....

    Chicken wise, I really love Orpingtons, since they are so beautiful and come in loads of colours. I also love my Wyandottes, which also come in tonnes of colours and are great all rounders.
