    [​IMG]I'm thinking of getting chickens, but I don't know which breed to get. I'm probaly going to get the "normal" ones.
    Which breed are they?

    P.S. They look like the ones off the Happy Egg advert! [​IMG]

    Every persons idea of a normal chicken is different. Some people prefer Australorps and others prefer Leghorns... I personally think the classic breed of chicken is a Rhode Island Red. I want nothing more than a RIR rooster in all it's glory on my farmhouse someday....ah...dreams....

    I love Buff Orpingtons (and my husband says that they look how a chicken should look).

    Have you seen the Happy Egg advert? If so, they look like that.

    The Happy Eggs come from a happy chicken thing? Those are Production Reds (hatchery quality Rhode Island Reds) - They're the most common out there besides Sex Links. (also similar and common) [​IMG]

    The next most normal breeds are hatchery-type Barred Rocks, Buff Orpingtons, and Black Australorps.
