    A few years ago it was all about Sussex, and now it seems like everyone is talking about Orpingtons. What do you think will be the next ‘hot’ breed?

    I would really love for it to be Hollands. I would like easy access to a heavy CALM white egg layer.

    Quote:X2 !!! I'll always have the "Orpington craze." I only breed and raise Orpingtons - I don't see that ever changing, except to possibly get some more of the different varieties over here from the UK.
