Hello! I'm from NJ and I was looking into chickens as pets. My uncle is a cop and he says I am allowed to have roosters as long as they don't get out of control. I have two problems. First, I need to fully convince my mom. Second, I can't decide on a breed. I had two options in mind. I can have a maximum of 12 birds in my town so I was thinking of either a mixture of 8 bantam breeds or 6 standards. As for standards, I was looking at transylvanian naked necks. I know I sound crazy, but I think they are so cute! As for bantams, I was looking at 8 different breeds. (silkie, Easter egger, barred rock, bearded d'uccle, Belgian d'anver, sebright, polish, and welsummer). So, to get to the point, I was hoping anyone could give me some feedback and their opinions on these breeds. Assorted bantams, or naked necks? I was hoping to get a few eggs out of them, and to show them in 4-H. I am the proud owner of six rabbits and I am hoping to have a liter this year. Any feedback would be helpful. I am hoping to have some birds by June or July!
