Ah, they are beautiful, I like a colorful flock! My flock is very mixed and colorful at this time. I'm glad I decided right off to try several different breeds to give me an idea of what works best for us. All of the different breeds out there can be dizzying though, I want one of everything! I do like my Jersey Giants, I know they are slow growing but that size with that glossy plumage is everything you could want in a bird. They are more docile than the hatchery RIR's but still not as friendly as my family needs! I am looking for a good breeder nearby.
