MY vote would have to be BUCKEYES
I vote Delaware, I got mine from Murray and I love them. Beautiful, big birds! Egglentine, my hen is my best layer. I get an egg every day, rain or shine, hot or cold! I LOVE HER. I sold my roosters because I could only keep one and I am in love with my little banty roo but they were great fun, very comical.
Buckeyes are very active and they love rodents. Wynadottes have a rose comb and many colors. Both are great choices. Then you could go really rare and do javas.
The Society for the Preservation of Poultry Antiquities is a good place to start.
I vote for Java's. You can get them black or mottled.
Wyndottes are a good heritage and dual purpose breed.
All the aforementioned birds are great. I have to say that the Buckeyes are probably in need of the most help.
Does anyone ELSE have Chanteclers? They are forming a new club.......
Re: Rare heritage breedsWell, I have to put in a vote for Dominiques.
I second the Dominique vote, mine are fat adn beautiful, very friendly too, course my Rhode Island Reds aren't chump change either!!....another long standing breed with good temperment....
Been researching the breeds and so far I think I can have 2 breeds if things go well I am thinking faverolles and chanteclers. I think am thinking of ordering from Sandhill, the chicks won't have far too travel I am several hours from there. But if anyone has any nice ones and want to sell me some eggs let me know. Thanks.
