    You would have to include OEG's. They outnumber every thing by far at any show I have ever been to. There are a lot of the Moderns as well.

    I'd say let people continue this thread and naming their favorite bantam breeds until first of the year,
    then you take the top 6 breeds mentioned the most to list in your poll.

    Mine are

    japanese

    cochins

    How do you like to eat your eggs?
    - Scrambled
    - Fried
    - Poached
    - Omlette
    - Hard boiled
    - Soft boiled
    - Boiled - hard white, soft yolk
    - Raw
    - Other
    - I don't like eggs
    - I feed them back to the chickens
    - I sell them instead of eating them
    - I hatch them all

    I conducted the same poll on my website, and 3% of respondants said that they liked their eggs raw (eek!). Fried and scrambled were far and away the most popular choices with 30% and 26% respectively.

    Also -
    - How many chickens do you have?
    - Do you use any feed supplements? (50% said no)
    - Standards or bantams?

    Hope that has given you a few ideas [​IMG]

    I think you answered your own question with your second post. That sounds like a good one to me.

    * Do you use additional Light in winter?
    * Do you use additional heat in winter?
    * Do you prefer:
    White eggs
    Brown eggs
    Other egg color?

    What do you do with extra eggs:
    * Give them away to friends and family.
    * Sell them
    * Feed them back to the chickens
    * Freeze or otherwise save them.
    * Other ?

    Are the polls for us Chicken folk or non-chicken folk - we're separate breeds you know???

    I genearally prefer polls with YES/NO answers, more straight forward and no chance (or very slim) of a person wanting to pick more than one answer.
