    New to BYC, (although I've used it for reference PLENTY) but not new to chickens.
    I live in the PNW with my husband, two daughters, two dogs, two cats, 1 goat, and 6 chickens are in my flock currently.
    Working towards homesteading/sustainability but got a bit overwhelmed and sidetracked along the way. We decided to focus on layers again to take a step in the right direction, and hope to add meat birds next year.

    Glad you joined us at Backyard chickens. That breeds do you currently have? Red or Black sex links seem to be outstanding layers (for the first 2 years at least) and Black Australorps are a very good layers and also duo purpose as meat birds.

    I have an Delaware/Ameraucana roo, a couple Delaware cross hens, and 3 Ameraucanas. I plan on adding Salmon Faverolles (MY FAVORITES) and Buckeyes this spring. My flock needs a little freshening up. [​IMG]

    I'm not really sure. I have had ONE in the past, but she made a big impression on me. She would come perch on my foot when I was out doing chores. Sometimes she tried WHILE I was walking and it sent her flying! [​IMG]
    I've read they are mediocre a laying and no idea on their tendency to become broody...
