    I listed a few breed in the poll to keep track, but im well aware i couldnt fit them all in....if its not listed, reply below stating which breed and why.
    If u could reply why a certain is your favorite, that would be great.
    I know the list of breeds are listed w/ highest ratings first, but i wanted to try this....

    I love Belgian Bearded D'uccles. (And Silkies [​IMG])
    [​IMG]
    They are sweet, beautiful, good broody's, and are excellent layers. Great for a backyard coop, and great for children! We love our D'uccles.

    [​IMG]

    I voted for Silkies on the Poll, because I love Silkies as much as our D'uccles (And because you had Silkies up there and not D'uccles). [​IMG] Hope that's okay.
