There is SO many breeds out there. I have a strong feeling that the law in my area will be changed. Anyway, I'm excited

! I planned a coop, and researched chickens by reading BYC and books. What breeds should I get? I want standard. My limit is eight chickens 'cause I live in a backyard. Whats a good rooster breed? are australorps good roosters? I only need one rooster.

im considering Chanteclers for a backyard laying flock.. large brown eggs. cold hardy, Nice. gentle. and after they stop egg production.. good meat bird.. lay all year around. and not TOO ugly.

I love my black star and my white rock. They are my two favs... perhaps I'll love my EEs more when they start giving me some colored eggs.
