I'm looking into getting chickens or chicks (preferably chicks), but I have no idea what kind to get. I NEED a winter hardy one, and I need a pretty good egg layer. I also would REALLY like something weird-looking and fluffy. I LOVE Silkies and Salmon Faverolles, but other weird breeds are good! I have a teeny Blue Cochin (bantam?), and a BIIIG Jersey Giant. They are both 6 months old, and they haven't layed yet! ( 'side' question- when SHOULD they start laying?) Thank you SOOOO much!!!
