Silkies,Frizzles,orpingtons and i have red shavers ( first ever chickens) all of these i have had from a day old and they have the best personalities ever my shavers still dont realise they are chickens
,im hopeing to bred the silkie with a frizzle to get sizzles
.But i think all chicken breeds in there own right are pretty cool i to am starting to get different breeds just for the different personalities
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 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.
