    I am a newbie at chickens, finishing our coop and getting our girls soon. This site has a wealth of information for which I am so thankful!

    Great choices in chickens. The Black Australorps are my favorite standard breed; very hardy, calm and gentle, and the best layers of the standard, brown egg laying breeds. The Easter Eggers are my granddaughter's favorites. She loves the colored eggs. Good luck with your flock.

    [​IMG]Welcome from Georgia!! Great breed choices! You will probably fall victim to chicken math soon, when that inevitable day comes a Maran or Welsummer hen would add some dark eggs to the colorful mix.[​IMG]
