    I have a lot of breeds but if I just had to choose one, it would be the Wyandotte. They are great layers, hardy, wonderful temperament, and beautiful. I have/had black, silver laced, gold laced, and columbian and will be getting blue laced red this spring. I believe that they are great all-around breed.

    Hmm... I have had over 20 breeds in my lifetime... even bantams... but if I had to choose one I'd say the Plymouth Rock. Mine have always been friendly and prolific layers.

    Buff Orpingtons. They're so docile and sweet and generally great mamas.
