    Thank you. well I have not got them yet. I am planning to get them in the next few weeks. I am getting Australorps, red sex links, white leghorns, maybe white rock and wanting some black Giants. Debating on the WR and the Giants though. Do you all have any breed that you want me to try? I will be more than happy to try, I have had Buff orpingtons, silver hamburgs, leghorns, black and red sex links, dominickers, barred rocks, buff bantam cochins, OE game, broilers, Mallard ducks Rhode Island reds, production reds and silkies. I believe that is it. If you all want me to try a breed that I haven't tryed then name it and I will be more than happy too. I am wanting at least 5 silkies. 2 good broody silkies and good fertile roosters. Thank you

    I know you will enjoy this forum a lot [​IMG]

    I think you shoud try CALIFORNIA WHITES!
    They are by far the best layers that we have out of 13+ breeds!
    They are VERY friendly and lay TONS of big white eggs!!!
    Look under leghorn on the breed page or click on the link on my singnature under this to learn GREAT stuff about this breed!!!

    Also maybe do a Google search on them and see what comes up.
    I get mine from a local who buys them and sells them but I do not know where she gets them.
    Tell us what you end up getting!!
