    What type of chicken should I breed? I want to breed 2 wite egg layers, 2 brown egg layers, and 2 green egg layes(americana,arucana). I live in louisiana where its 100 in the summer and 35 in the winter. Plus I want two colorful friendly exotic breeds. And one broody breed. Any suggestions???[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Kinda sounds like the weather here. A bunch of different breeds do ok here. I have Orphingtons, Americaunas or EE's, Black Australops. This covers the brown and blue egg layers. I don't have any white egg layers but a friend of mine had Leghorns which lay white eggs. If they are ok here I would think they would be ok there. I have also had RIR, Barred Rocks, Silkies, and Seramas too.
