Ok, with our free hatchery order we are going to get more chickens, of course. I need help picking breeds. The only things I'm not into are silkies, polish, or cochins (no offence, I just prefer normal feathered chickens. Its a personal thang lol) I have a REALLY big demand in my area for eggs, so I am looking for good layers with the following atributes: 1) Good brown egg layers that aren't tempermental, like to be handled, do well with other chickens when added to a flock, and lay medium to large eggs. 2) Good white egg layers with the same as above. 3) I'd also like some banties for smaller eggs. Suggestions on good breeds that meet what we're looking for? 4) If some of the above would also be good as dual birds, that would come in handy. We are going to be moving our flock to Organic feeds and will eventually get them certified as Organic birds. If/when I do that, I plan to sell meat chickens as well, so a few good dual purpose birds would be nice. I already know that I'd like a few Marans for the rich chocolate brown eggs, but I dont know much about the breed.
