    I think anything bantam is top of my list.....they just seem so pointless. I like a substantial chickie to hug, and decent sized eggs are nice, too. Next would have to be showirl's.....good grief, can't even fathom calling a roo a "girl"!!!

    Polish. I got some 'cuz my husband wanted them. Of course I ended up taking care of them, and as it turns out, they're incredibly difficult to keep.

    Although turkens are supposed to be a good breed for egg laying, I could not get over the look of them. So they would be #1. on my list.
