    For the last month I have been trying to choose what breed I'm going to get to add to my flock, so that is the point of this poll to help to choose the right type of bird to get.

    What are your goals and criteria? What do you want the chickens to do? Do you want them for pets, eggs, meat, eggs and meat, bug control, to show, to breed, to be eye candy, or something else? Is egg color important? Do you want them to go broody? Some people hate white chickens. Some hate black or red. Some like and some don't like them to be barred or have certain patterns.

    We all have them for different reasons. There is no way I'd think about recommending a chicken unless I knew what you wanted. I see nothing wrong with any of the ones you listed. Why not get some of each?

    Well I want them for eggs and show and I want a bird that is average broody or Seldom, and I like them all so I just need other peoples personal preference to choose which breed I will get out of the three (Sorry can't get all three).
    Thanks
