    I think I'd try some Faverolles, and Brahmas.

    I'll probably be getting a couple more leghorns. I like how consistent they are at laying.

    I'll also add some new blood to my FBCMarans.

    Probably my top two would Orpingtons and Wyandottes, then Salmon Faverolles and Ameraucanas. I have some of all the above though, so I'm not sure "buy again" applies.

    Show Quality Brahmas. I LOOVE Brahmas, but currently my only girls are severely underweight, horridly colored, and sadly put together hatchery girls. Still love em, but I love proper Brahmas more - Especially UK-style ones. [​IMG]

    I'd add a few more red sex links. My 2 are sooooo friendly and I think they are pretty. And EEs, you can never have too many EEs!

    Barnvelder. I only had one Buckeye chick hatch from shipped eggs, so I'm hoping it's a pullet; if not, I want to try hatching Buckeyes again. Already have Favorelles and FBCM chicks in the brooder (with the Buckeye chick). Already have a young Olive Egger pullet, too. And a lav Orpington.

    Out of curiosity's sake, I think a frizzled Cochin would be nifty.
