    Honestly, the "regular" ones are my favourite.

    They are consistent layers and seem to be the most calm (don't freak out like my other colour varieties do), and they're super easy to sex. No muss, no fuss. But I do like the look of this grey tuxedo hen I have..

    Definitely a light silver (almost pearl) color. I have a silver tuxedo gentleman roo that I am trying to breed more for that color.

    I also like the standard Pharoah pattern and Italian colors.

    The white or silver birds. Especially the white birds. English or A&M. My son loves to give them well water high in iron and watch them turn cinnamon colored. Takes about two months.
