I want to know what your favorite kind of chicken is! Let's figure out what the most popular type of chicken that is raised by the BYC'ers! I'll tally it all down. I'll start: For me, I'll have to go with my RIR's. They are just so friendly and are always waiting for me when I go in the coop. Not to mention they are great egg layers! BTW, only pick one breed that is your favorite. I know, it's pretty difficult, but just pick one.
