    They are your chicks...get the breed you want.
     
  4. What do you want your chickens to accomplish for you: Provide meat, Generate Eggs, serve as ornaments for the barn yard. Until you answer this, we can not give you a recommendation for the "Best Breed for You"

  5. The problem is that I live in canada and I use Rochester Hatchery,
    But the breed that i like the hatchery don't carry them anymore so if I want that breed i will have to spend more money then normal.
    What should I do still stick to the breed I like or the other breed?

    If I was you, I'd spend the little extra money (if you can afford it) and get the chicks you want. Otherwise later you may be saying, what if?
     
  7. Maybe I get both breeds
