So I grew up with Chickens in Germany as a child I have been in the US since 1987 but just recently got back into owning Chickens. Most of my breeds are for Eggs not muck into meat birds well because I don't want to butcher. Not that you have too but I do like my fresh eggs. I have a large variety of breeds mostly because I like showing and I like the fancy breeds. Always nice to talk to people with experience.
