    I think the ladies are still craving those Silkies, and Cochins....and you will see a whole new crowd interested in those adorable Call ducks!


    The men are after light Sussex and those large, darker shades of Orpingtons.


    What breeds do you think??

    I was going to say Silkies.

    Heritage breeds are becoming more popular again, as well. (IMO.)


    Im after MGB's and Crele and/or Self Blue OEGB's....

    The newly available Sussex colors are pretty "hot" right now. Seems like the Marans craze is fading a bit. I'm staying away from both, trying to find more BW Ameracaunas. I think they're "the one" for me, but I'm going to make more BBS Orps too because they're so cute and fluffy free-ranging [​IMG]

    oh I never thought of that. wouldnt that be awesome!!!! I have yet to even get the F1 pair to mate so its gonna be a long road. By accident I got a bantam cockerel to go over a very large hen so I think that AI will be needed.
