    Greetings everyone!

    I'm Kittie and I'm new to this group.

    I'm currently taking care of 3 Dominiques for quite some time now. I'm planning to take care of other breeds of chicken. Can you guys suggest to me what the best breeds would?

    Glad I've found this group.

    Hi Kittie . First we need to know what you expect of your chickens. Do you want layers, dual purpose or meat birds? Do you intend to breed/show? Do you want docile breeds that are friendly.?

    Will you free range, or keep them confined in runs? Your birds are beautiful.

    Well I guess first [​IMG] !!!!!!
    Kittie that is one grand looking Roo you have there !!!!!
    No body should be telling you what to get only suggest
    the different types or breeds available do to your needs
    and the clement in which you live and the accommodations
    you can provide for a larger flock so are you looking for
    show stock meat egg production or just a colorful bunch
    of chickens as you can see every little bit makes a difference
    as the needs and wants of each person .......
