I want something that will lay 4-5 times a week, rareish, has a good hatch rate, cold hardy and would sell well. Anyway, what would you recommend as a good breed to breed?

Check out the Livestock Consevancy web page, the list rare and endangered breeds. If you are really interested in maintaining a specific breed, I would recommend getting eggs from a private breeder. They are usually truer to the breed than a hatchery because good breeders will pay more attention to specific traits rather than commercial hatchery production.

I ordered off of chickens for backyards, and I got beautiful healthy chickens!
