I have a small back yard flock (14 birds). I'm looking to add a few more to my flock. I already have Rhode Island Red, Black Astralorpes, Black Sexlink, Yellow Sexlink, Aracauna, Barred Rock, and Light Brahmas. Two of my flock are roosters (a Rhode Island Red and a Barred Rock Mix) I'm not looking to breed purebreds. These are purely for egg and personal entertainment. I'd like good egg layers. I'd love to get a good broody. I had one for many years that raised everything from chickens to turkeys and we even found a kitten under her once.She is so old, she isn't laying or being broody anymore. My other broody was really sick this winter. It left her blind and impaired. I seriously doubt she will go broody this year. So, it's back to the farm store we go! We'll be hand raising again this year. They have several breeds to choose from, and I'm not sure which ones would be a good addition. I'm only looking to get a few, so I need to choose wisely. We live on the coast of Washington, so I need a breed that can handle rain and windy weather. We don't get too extreme in temps hot or cold, but we do have the rare days. Here are the breeds they have in stock now that I might be interested in.... Buff Orpingtons Partridge Cochins Buckeyes Dominiques Mottled Java Blue Andolusian Golden Spangled Hamburg Sicilian Buttercup Marans Any info on these breeds to help me choose? I'm researching them now (most I don't know at all). But I'd love some advice from people who have been there with these breeds.
