Get Orpingtons. They are the fluffiest and "fattest" of them - But personally I'd rather get Brahmas. They're said to lay less eggs, but they lay enough for me and have wonderful personalities, lovely fuzzy feet, and the fluffiest, softest bodies and butts I've ever known! . . . Plus they're not exceedingly common, so you have something different to look at.

Thanks for all the great ideas guys!
It is so tempting to get a few of each!
I need a bigger yard, haha!

Quote:Love them too! I would say they have less personality than a orpington (my orp seems to have a spice to her mind :S) but they are so sweet and fluffy. And their feathers are like those of ducks!

wheaten marans if you can find them , they can b sexed early , good meat bird , lays large round close to darkest eggs there are . the only draw back its 11 months or so to first eggs you will get back they lay as good as my rocks, and EE do .
