During the summer we thinned our flock down to just 6 birds. 5 hens and our Roo. Then in October a bobcat got in and now we have no birds at all. We are thinking of getting more birds this spring. However we dont know what breeds we want. We are looking at just 6 birds again because we cant handle more eggs then that. Mom wants something traditional like barred rocks or orpington. My grandmother and I on the other hand want a fancier breed of bird. Does anyone have suggestions of boldly colored, traditional-bodied birds?
