    My wishlist includes more Cream Brabanters - they are the punk rockers of my coop, more Crested Cream Legbars - to join my Queen Elsa, and more Ameraucanas - to join my Wheaten roo and Lavender split. The best attitude in my coop is out of one of my Buff-Laced Brahmas, so I wouldn't mind adding more mellow birds.
    My flock is quite diverse, so adding more breeds would be interesting and fun.
    Edited to add:
    And Favaucanas.

    I too would love hatching eggs, your birds are so pretty, I get my chicks from you guys always, you're my favorite and only hatchery, love love My Pet Chicken. I like your Carolina blues and your Cuckoo Bluebars, and olive Eggers, and of course you purely posh and your designer mix. Guess I like a lot of them. Though if I order and win eggs I might be overrun.

    Love your guys eggs so much! If I had to choose though, I would have to say I want to try some new breeds, and I would like to have some white eggs (My dad will ONLY eat white eggs, no way of convincing him they are exactly the same as brown, blue, pink, green, etc.) But I love other colors too.

    So, my choices would have to be these:
    Golden Campine
    Mille Fleur D'Uccle Bantams (Always wanted some of these)
    Any Silkies, Though Blue Silkies are my favorites
    Golden Cuckoo Marans
    Golden or Silver Laced Polish

    This forum has been extremely helpful in introducing readers (especially ME) to breeds not normally mentioned elsewhere.

    I am ready to send my older hens to freezer camp and replace all but two hens. Why am I keeping two? The girls are consistent brooders. For me this is the perfect way to add to the flock and to replace non-productive hens, allowing the broody hens to raise the chicks properly. I don't speak chicken and I definitely do not scratch around in the gardens for tasty bugs, grubs and worms. I find that my girls get a better start in life with lessons and protection from "momma hen" as they adapt to life in the flock and to free ranging.

    I began my "chicken life" with pullets from a local farm. Now I can't imagine life without chickens. In my neighborhood I am not allowed a rooster which eliminates any chance of having home-grown fertile eggs.

    It is time to start a new and interesting flock so the plan is to hatch some unusual and/or threatened breeds. The prospect is exciting. I'm anxious for the hens to show signs of being broody. I will then assemble the broody coop and fence off a nice nursery area.

    I will check back often to this forum to help choose my breeds.
