OK so if you read my introduction you know that I am about to move to the country and my husband has given me permission to get my first flock. So what breed should I get? I want a dual purpose chicken that'll provide lots of fresh BROWN eggs and good meat for the table. But I also want a good looking bird too since I'll be looking at them every day. Oh, and I'm looking to start out with probably 10 birds. 9 hens and 1 cock? I've found 4 breeds that I'm leaning towards.... Rhode Island Red Orpington - buff Brahma - I like all 3 colors Plymouth Rock Any suggestions? Why that breed? What would be your advice for someone starting their first flock?
