    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] I love too many breeds to list here! Some of my have/had and want-to-have's are RIR, Buckeyes, Games (OEG, Aseels), Sussex, Bluebell (new type of hybrid layer), Brahma, White Face Spanish…

    If you'd like us to help you identify what breeds and genders you have in your flock, post some pics of them in the Breed/Gender section here:

    :frow Hi, and welcome to BYC! Good to have you join us. :)

    silkies are my favorites breed, but sadly, I currently don't own any. I have Australorps, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks, and silver laced Wyandottes right now. :)

    I like Easter eggers they are very pretty, lay blue or green eggs, can lay brown eggs also and they are one of my best layers
