Tell me what you like about your favorite breed. I have been looking, and really, there are just so many varieties and so little room in the coop. I have room for about 50 or so in the coop. Last year I hatched about 75 or 80 chicks, most of which I sold or gave away. This year I want to pick a direction and head that way but there are so many choices I just can't decide. I like to have a variety in my coop. I love my Mille Fluer d'Uccles and my silkies, but they are so small. I also have a number of bantam cochins that are a little bigger but still kinda small. I'm thinking I want to go towards full size birds this year. I do have some larger birds. I have a Cukoo Maran and 3 Buff Orps, and an easter egger. Oh and a couple dorkings. I consider my chickens to be yard ornaments, colors are important, I like variety and adore the unusual. So, what should I get?
