    I know. So many breeds, so many decisions to make. For those with the time and space, I say go for it!

    I'm always going to have a small flock, so I can't let my self get hooked on too many breeds. One or two good quality purebred trios or quads, and some random layers for a colorful egg basket is what works best for me right now.

    I've had Welsummers and Barnevelders... Wellies were gorgeous, but too flighty for me... Barnies seemed to eat a lot for their size...

    A good line of Wellies are sexable at hatch, though... :)

    It seems like the Wellies have been hit or miss from people I've talked to. You love them or hate them.

    The Barnies I hadn't heard they ate more, thanks for the insight. I think the hens look awesome, and I like darker eggs balanced with good egg production. Everything I've heard about marans is that they aren't as good of layers. Any experience with them?

    Hello my name is Tracy, and I'm new to this site. I have 5 laying hens that I raised from fuzzballs, and they will be a year old in March.
