So, I recently acquired a large cotton trailer that I will be converting into my coop. The extra space will allow me around 40 hens. I plan on ordering from one source to maintain simplicity and, since Ideal is an hour from my location, I will be picking up there in the spring. So far, my list is as follows: 1. White Leghorn 2. Blue Andulusian 3. Buff Minorca 4. Buff Catalana 5. Norwegian Jaerhon 6. White-Faced Black Spanish 7. Silver-Spangled Hamburg 8. Silver Lakenvelder 9. Gold Lakenvelder 10. Black Australorp 11. Mottled Java 12. Black Langshan 13. Cuckoo Marans 14. Welsummer 15. Black Jersey Giant 16. Golden Laced Wyandottes Egg production is the main focus but, with 40 hens, it won't be a huge priority. I just wanted a mix of colors and temperaments and thought this would provide that. Does anyone have any bad experiences with these varieties?
