Just like the title says, what's your favorite breeds and why. Mine are.... 1. Buff Orpingtons, because they are beautiful and good all around birds, and are decent egg producers long into their lives. 2. Barnevelder, because they are quiet gentle birds with beautiful plumage, and they lay dark brown eggs. 3. Easter eggers because they are all different and those blue green eggs. They are the toy surprise of chicken breeds. 4. Wyandotte because they come in a range of colors, and I love that lacing. 5. Bantam cochins because they are gentle puff balls that also come in a range of colors as well as frizzle. Plus the roosters are feisty silly boys. So what's your favorite breeds?
