    I'm getting a new coop this year [​IMG] so I can get some more chicks! I like different looking chickens. We have 4 silkies and 4 cochins right now. Only 1 hen the rest are roosters. [​IMG] Must be cold hardy, friendly, & docile- small kids at home.

    Was looking at: Dorkings, Ameraucana, Dominique, Brahma

    I LOVE the look of:

    Belgian Bearded d'Uccle Bantam, Houdan, Polish, Sultan -Anyone have these breeds and live in colder climates???
  2. Indiana hens

    Try some rumpless tufted Araucanas! Would be great for the kids to show. I bought mine from Nancy Utterback and they are the sweetest birds. One bantam sits on my head or shoulder when I open the nursery to feed. Take a look! http://www.araucana.net/images/Utterback/Utterback.htm
