    Here is a question to make me sound even more ignorant, how big is big for these hens you are naming?[​IMG]

    You are close by to me actually....I live about 30 min from King of Prussia. Do you know anywhere around that breeds them?

    go to mypetchicken and do their breed selector...you can see pictures of each bird and all kinds of good info: weight, # of toes, comb type, amount of eggs layed in a week, if they are calm or aggressive, can tolerate the cold or not, and if they are okay with being confined.

    it makes it pretty easy to figure out what breed is the best for you.

    Good luck and let us know what you decide upon!
