Ok, so around February or March of next year, I am going to buy 15 chicks from Cackle hatchery (unless I find a better hatchery). I like the fact that they have a minimum order of 15 without tons of extra fees. My one problem is, they have a minimum of 5 chicks of each breed. I love having a variety of breeds, but this means I will only be able to have three. Right now I have an OEG bantam, a Japanese bantam, a bantam Cochin, a Buff Orpington, a Rhode Island Red, a Production Red, and an Easter Egger. I want green, brown, and I am considering white egg layers. I want them to lay pretty good, but I enjoy their looks too. Right now, my Production Red and my Rhode Island Red have been making me breakfast almost every day. I am thinking I will definitely get some Easter Eggers, and I like Barred Rocks. I really don't like the looks or personality of the Leghorn, and I am not sure if I want white eggs, so I don't think I will get them. Anyway, do you think I should get Barred Rocks, and what other brown egg laying breed should I get? Any hatchery suggestions are welcome too!
