    New here...been gathering info from Backyard Chickens for months...finally decided to join! Looking forward to it! :) Finishing our coop this weekend and have decided to go with Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rock, and Buff Orpingtons. We are wanting dual purpose birds and from my research... I think these are our best options. Open to any suggestions tho... :)

    Sounds like a great mix of good layers and meat birds! I think you will enjoy them greatly!

    Enjoy all your adventures in life!

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] RIR and BR are both great breeds. Australorps are sweet and good layers and they are hardy! As are Buckeyes if you can find a breeder nearby. Check out the Breeds section for more ideas and enjoy!
