    It seems to me that there are three types of chicken people.

    Those who have chickens primarily for pets and to look at.

    Those who raise chickens primarily for eggs and/or meat.

    Those who raise chickens primarily to show in competitions.

    I thought there would be some people who would be a combination of the choices.

    But just pick the primary reason for you to have chickens.

    I keep them for eggs, but they are also our pets and eye candy. I chose the egg option though since we will be eating them down the road.

    What breed of chicken laid the egg on the right? It looks kind of pinkish brown.

    It seems that eggs and/or meat is in the lead right now. I suspected that would be the top choice, but I was not sure. We will see if it changes.
