    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    You'll be getting some nice breeds! I'm particularly a fan of the Wyandotte breed- mine have been good layers and sweet, docile, and hardy birds. Australorps also have a reputation for being very gentle and excellent egg layers.

    Good luck with your future chicks!

    Thanks everyone!

    I went back and forth between what breeds to get, started out a EE, Golden Comet, Welsummer and Australorpe but they were not available. I'm pretty happy with my current selection, now to keep them alive and hope for no Roos!

    I was looking for really cold hardy, docile, good layers and hey pretty! I even made pictures with those breeds together to see how they all looked. haha.
