    It seems as though I've caught a bad case of Chicken Math.

    I've been thinking of getting four more hens to bring my total up to 10, or maybe three hens and one rooster(though my parents are NOT fans of the rooster idea). I've found some chicken breeds, but need help deciding between them if I do end up getting more. If I do, I will get two of each breed.

    Help me pick! I can't wait to see the results! Poll closes in one month.

    What are your goals, more eggs or pretty chickens?
    ....and before I vote, do you have room for 4 more birds?
    Integration takes extra space.
    Will you get day old chicks or older birds?

    More chickens and more eggs, pretty is a bonus. Those four up there are the ones I can't decide between because they are all "good".

    I do have room for more, and space for integration. I'm planning on getting day-old chicks from the same hatchery as my other girls.
