    I have 25 hens and no roosters, so I am currently not breeding any; however I bred dozens of breeds over the past 50 years, with the most recent being Black Australorps. If I start breeding again, I will go back to breeding Black Australorps. They are my favorite standard breed; very hardy, calm and gentle, and the best layers of the brown egg laying breeds.

    P.S. I forgot to add that I currently own 7 Black Australorps, 7 Black Sex Links, 4 Buff Orpingtons, and 7 Easter Eggers. The EEs are my granddaughter's favorites. She loves the colored eggs.
