Hello to all. I'm a "southernyankee" in foreign territory.........lol I have a friend of mine that has chickens, she's kind enough to give me eggs once in a while, but I'd like to have some of my own, so I'm working on it. I have looked at all the breeds and will probably just get a few, like 4 or 5. Will probably get docile ones cause I know me, they'll wind up pets. I was looking at the Barred Rock chickens, Jersey Giants, Rhode Island Reds and the Wyandottes. Maybe some of you out there can tell me some experiences you have had with the breeds. I remember a story my mother told me when I was a kid. Her grandmother had a Rhode Island Red Rooster that was her favorite and a pet, but when the grandmother wasn't around it used to chase my mother around the yard and she'd holler for her grandmother.........lol Maybe that was just cause he wasn't familiar with her, don't know. I'm excited to learn about the different breeds. It's not a thing with me, I like white eggs too, but think the brown eggs are pretty. Hope to hear from someone soon. Bye for now.
