    Hello! My name is Chris and I live in Edmond, OK. I have been wanting to get some chickens and need some help with reviews of what would be a good breed to start with. of course I really dont want to start with feeder chickens. I would like to invest in good, well thought of ones. I have in mind of possibly Gold Buff Orpingtons. I have 5 Incubators that are just setting and would like to start using them again. When I was a child my parents where into the Ostrich and Rhea and Emu and raised and hatched there eggs. So I know the whole process of Candling the eggs and checking for fertelity due to me growing up in that kind of buisness. Please give me some ideas to work with. Your help will be very appreciated.
