My family and I are planning our 1st flock for spring 2014 here in Albuquerque, NM. I believe we are settled on the following breeds for our dive into urban-chickens: 1. Australorp. 2. Rhode Island Red. 3. Plymouth Rock. 4. Easter Egger. 5. Golden laced Wyandotte. 6. Buff Sussex. 7. Wellsummer. Any thoughts on these girls individually and as a group all together ? Thanks !
