    I'm looking to fill an open pen, but I don't know what I want. I enjoy the rarer chickens. I recently tried to get some Barnevelders but basically ended up with a bust. I want to stay away from bantams.

    Any ideas?

    I have three chicken coops w/ runs. Two are occupied and the third is empty. I was wanting to raise another "purebred" standard breed in it.

    Any ideas on what the new breed should be? I like the rare ones.

    I was thinking Wesummer's since they lay chocolate colored eggs. I wanting descent egg layers.

    Or Salmon Favolleses (misspelled I'm sure).
