    Which would you rather have the most of? Pubreds or Mutts? I would rather have mutts because I like all the colors that are mixed in to one bird. Do not tell my purebreds that though. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure. Pure chickens are wonderful but mutts are too! And Seramas are in between because they're pure but hatch in all colors! No idea.

    I want purebreads so I can make my own mutts [​IMG] They all kinda have to be bare legged and partridge though. Im getting black, EE, and barred chicks soon. Shoulda gotten more partridge... [​IMG]

    I LOVE my mutts - because - each one looks unique and we can tell them apart by apprearance and personality. I have 3 mutts, 2 Black Astralorps, and 4 EEs. My kids have claimed the mutts as they know who is who.

    BTW - all seem to lay at about the same rate - and our skinniest little banty mix lays HUGE [email protected]!

    I picked pure breds because if you sell them you can usually make more of a profit but in the longrun i love all chickens!

    i like getting mutt eggs to hatch as you never know what can be thrown out and what they will end up looking like

    I could not choose. I love many purebred chickens and Orps are a big favorite, but I have a couple really pretty mutts that are sweet, good layers and I would not trade them for any purebred . I love all chickens!
