I am going to fix up our barn, and we will have 3 different "Coops". I have been wanting to breed forever, and I am ordering some lavender orpington chicks about next month. I can get two other breeds. But I am going to breed and SELL, so I am really looking for rare breeds, and I am not going to ship, I will have to go pick up the chicks, I live in VIRGINIA. I had a list that I eventtually narrowed down. I am looking for heavy breed birds, with rare varieties. I need something slightly simple, that I won't have to work with to strive for the same color every year, because I have read that the Lav Orps you have to have so much tied in with them. So I need rare color breeds. No bantams. This was my list so far, Not sure if anyone in VA has any of them, though: Golden Laced Orpingtons Jubilee Orpingtons Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons Mille Fleur Cochins Lemon Blue Cochins Dun Laced Wyandottes Buff Laced Wyandottes Wheaten Marans Can Someone please give me some pointers from my list and add a few breeds, or tell me what you breed? Thankyou.
