Hi all! I am planning on building a chicken coop this spring and need your help! I have been pouring over hatchery websites, catalogs, and Facebook pages trying to decide and narrow down what breeds I want to order. Even though I grew up with chickens, I was never able to choose what breeds we owned so I am having a field day I have already decided on Black Copper Marans and Ameraucanas as eventually I can have those AND Olive Eggers I have always been drawn to the look of Silver Laced Wyandottes so I am considering those, along with BLRW. I have also considered at the possibility of White Orpington, Partridge Rock, Silkie, and/or Silver Polish Crested chicks. Opinions/suggestions are appreciated! What are your favorite breeds? If you have owned any of these breeds in the past please let me know your experiences! Thanks a bunch!!
