    Currently I breed bbs and white silkies, blue and black rosecombs, and a few white bantam Cochins, but I'm giving my Cochins to a friend so I have room for another breed or color. I'm thinking either having a different pen for my blue rosecombs, getting modern game bantams (I really don't want to dub them) , or Mille fleur d'uccle, I love Malays but I don't have enough space to deal with their size or aggressive behavior . I also like frizzles What do you guys think I should do? My favorite out of these choices are the moderns but again I don't want to dub them and if I don't I can't show them

    I have a hard time picking breeds for other people. One old breed that I rarely think about is sebright. Your already raise rosecombs so at least your used to dealing with the comb. I think they are an overlooked variety and I don't see many good ones. I really like OEGB but If you want to show them there are just so many good ones at shows. Bantam cornish are on my short list. I really like the bantam welsummers and marans but haven't wanted them since I found out they didn't lay dark eggs.
