I've had bantams. They can be fun but the eggs are really small.Sleep is for the weak.
I sleep it's just at weird times in Australia.
I would highly recommend the Olive Egger. they are smaller hens, closer to leghorns than Orpingtons. Great personalities.
The norfolk grey is intriguing to me. I don't know a lot about them.
Wyandottes are beautiful but I feel like I hear of them causing issues in flocks. I've never had one.
You know Australorps, you don't need help there.
That was probably no help at all.
I am so excited for you!
How big is your coop?
