    BCW polish. Couldn't see worth a darn and did poorly as a "farm bird". They are more pet style lawn ornaments. At least the silkies have more spunk and can run and hide when danger calls.

    Mine would have to be seabrights. All the roosters were mean and very aggressive and no matter what I gave them, their egg shells were always thin and most cracked very easily. I love the silver & golds but, my luck with them was not good.

    I would never have any feather footed breeds again. Gather dirt to easy....and chickens like dirt. [​IMG]

    I'm with Jody. I really don't care for the feather-footed chickies. Just get too dirty.

    Silver-spangled Hamburg. I like her but her eggs are small and she's much flightier than the rest of my flock.
