    New to feathered friends! I am new to Rainier, OR and living on 1.5 acres. I found this forum from another website..what a great find! I am wanting to build a coop from completely recylced materials. I have been collecting wood pallets and found some blueprints to work from. I have yet to decide on what breed to purchase for the best eggs. Would gladly take suggestions. Am hoping to connect with some other folks nearby that would be willing to lend some advice. I am also a painter, scooter rider and a Grandma of 3 beautiful grandchildren!

    There are many great laying breeds. If its just for home use, I'd get a variety, the different birds are fun to look at, and you can get different colors of eggs- blue, green, olive, tan, brown, chocolate colored...

    Check out the Breeds Index for some great ideas.
