    What do you want? It's easier to choose for you if you say. Meat? Pets? Eggs?
    I would recommend Orpingtons.

    I am wanting a popular breed that there is a market for. A dual purpose breed, so if the roos don't go, I will still have meat birds, but I want them to really shoot the eggs out of themselves, and I want a pure breed, not a cross, prefferably because cross breed roos don't grow up to be huge, as I have experienced.

    What color(s) do you prefer? There are many breeds that fit your previous criteria.

    not litterally, but I would like many, many eggs per day or like 100 eggs per 4-5 days.

    thanks.

    Rhode Island Reds are big birds and egg shooters. Real big eggs. They are great dual purpose birds. Personnally I like Silkies and Cochins. [​IMG]
