I not totally in love with our Red Links. They seem to be grumpy and complain a lot! The others are quiet happy girls. Our Red links are very smart and have take charge personalities. They are okay just not my favorite. I have a favorite Black Link. She will let me pet her and she jumped in my arms a few days ago. I love her! I like calm, not flighty, docile, birds. For the most part that is what I have. What are your favorites. I want to add a few new breeds. I'm thinking about doing it by getting fertilized eggs and put them under a broody hen. I was thinking of Barred Rock. I have always heard wonderful things about them. I'm thinking Ameracuana (sp). I like the idea of having a different color egg. Not just brown or white. I've thought about Maran's for the chocolate eggs. Again for the different egg color. I guess I want to be able to look an an egg and know who laid it. Maybe Delaware? I think they are pretty.
