    I'm going to start raising chickens again now that I'm settling down. I wanna work on some the rarer breeds. So far I'm possibly considering lavender orpington, silver sussex, coronation sussex, lemon cuckoo orpington, blue laced red wyandotte. What other breeds or rare colors could I consider?

    IMO,
    Self Blue (Lavender) Orpingtons, Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons and Blue Laced Red Wyandottes aren't "rare" since they haven't been out that long.
    saladin started a thread some tome back that had some rare breeds in it here is the starting list.

    Asil
    Dorkings
    Malays
    Old English (Large Fowl)
    Nankins
    Pyncheons
    Creves
    LaFleche

    Houdan
    Java
    Polish
    Red Caps
    Shamo
    Sussex
    Cubalaya
    Delaware

    Holland

    I will also add
    Rhode Island Red (rose and single comb)
    Rhode Island White


    Breeds listed above are non-hatchery birds.
