    Just curious as to what others plan on adding to their flock for the upcoming year. We are adding only a few chickens this year to go with our current 26. Of those, we have about 16 different breeds.
    We are getting turkeys for the first time.

    I've already got an order in for:

    Chickens:
    3 Buckeyes -1 male and 2 females. This breed has moved to the top of my list for favorite chicken.
    2 EE pullets (I normally don't like EE's, but do like their eggs)
    2 Delaware pullets
    1 Black Sumatra male
    1 WF Black Spanish pullet
    Sebrights

    Turkeys:
    2 Black Spanish
    2 Narragansett
    1 Royal palm

    So, what's on your list for this year?
