I'm not really. I just wanted 4 hens for eggs and as pets. My Grandmother had chickens when I was a young boy and I've been thinking about getting a few myself for years now. I don't need chickens, I want chickens. So I get four RR chickens and one is a rooster. OK, no problem, I'll just get a few less eggs per week now with the rooster. But, I really wanted more eggs and my Grandmother did have a few different breeds and the Barred Rocks do look really nice and if I can just double my coop size, enlarge my roosts and expand my run a little I could get a couple Barred Rocks and I would be perfectly happy. OK, so the feed store gives my a couple chicks and they turn out to be Black Australorps. I didn't want Austalorps but, they are sweet and I've read they give bunches of eggs so now I'm good. But you know, I still think I should get a couple Barred Rocks like my Grand Mother had when I was young. The feed store will have some Rocks Dec 19 and if I more my run up against my tool shed and open up one side I will have a 12x12 run. That's 144 sqft. Ten feet per bird in the run-I could I could have 14 chickens. 2 more Barred Rocks gives me only 8 chickens. If I clean out my tool shed, sell some of the junk I don't need, I could convert half my shed into a coop. Say 6x12 coop in the shed. 72 sqft of coop. 2 sqft per bird in the coop. I could have 36 chickens. But I don't cause I'm not an addict like a lot of the folks here. OK, so I do like the Blue Rocks I've seen here. Marans would be nice for some dark eggs. A few Buff Orpingtons for their creamy color. I could get a couple EE's for the colored eggs. Anyway, I could always use the entire tool shed for a coop and with the housing crisis we're in now wood prices may fall some so building a bigger run shouldn't cost too much and I do have an extra roll of fencing......gotta go now and clean out the coop and maybe take some measurements..........because I want to, not because I'm some kind of addict.... ...Here I am previewing this post and I realize I don't have any Wyandottes. They sure are pretty. Silver Laced, BLRW, Partrige. Would be nice to have a few of those or Delawares or Sussex. Anyway, I'm off to tend to my chickens. Have a good day.
