    So i have my fenced field and 6 chickens, all large breeds (including JG), and am planning on fencing in another part of the field. Not sure wether to use that extra field for getting some bantams (probably modern game or silkie), runner ducks or for spare roosters. What do you think?

    I think you should get whatever interests you. My opinion doesn't matter on that subject. :hmm Everyone likes something different with poultry. That's part of the endless appeal of keeping them. :)

    My friend is getting those, almost like frizzle geese aren’t they. I was definitely thinking of geese as well, I’ll try to add that to the poll.
