I find these forums interesting. It seems that I discover something new every time I browse this site. One thing I notice is that there are just as many types of people as there are colors and varieties of chickens, and there is a breed suited to every personality. So I'm curious, What breeds do you raise and Why? I beleive that we are all here because there is something that is blissfully indefinable about raising poultry. So share what your flavor is. Is it a specific color, or that you got a bargain on pullets for eggs. What about are the specific reasons such as: preservation, playing with genetics, long tails, long crowers, appealing shape/size, personal egg production and use, commercial egg production, meat production, docile nature for pets, something to keep kids busy with (4-H) ect.
