    I am a dual purpose kind of gal...I just love the way big fluffy DP birds look, and their wonderful personalities, and all the amazing colors they come in! My flock consists of french black copper marans, blue laced red wyandottes, buff orpingtons, a salmon faverolle, speckled sussex, and easter eggers.

    I like wyandottes, they come in very pretty colors. I also think dorkings are nice looking as well as australorps. o course if your allowed to have roos virtually any breed will be quite pretty

    I like blue, laced and penciled of any breed.
    Good black birds like Black Jersey Giants and Black Penedesencas have beautiful green/blue sheen .
    Jaers, Frizzles and Anconas are nice.
    If it's warm where you are, Fayoumis and Seramas are nice too.

    Buff Brahmas and Speckled Sussex. The Brahmas are just big stately birds and so easy going. The Sussex are mostly quiet and follow us around like puppies.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For me there is nothing more beautiful than a leghorn hen or rooster - all the varieties.
