Picking the right breed


May 28, 2020
I currently have a main flock of chickens of various larger bodied hens and two bantams for egg productions and pets. I have built a completely separate run and coop to try a small breeding flock. I was initially interested in Hedemoras solely based on a google search that showed a Wooly hen. Ive had an extremely hard time trying to get hatching eggs and chicks, hatched out 36 eggs and have 1 chick left, and ordered chicks that all arrived dead.
I want a breed that is kinda rare, friendly and pretty. I was looking toward landrace breeds so I wouldnt have to be very strict or selective with breeding, since I will get attached and not want to cull.
What are some other options out there?
