    Their is only one rule to follow. It has to be a common bird that my local feed store sells. Here are some examples: Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, etc.

    edit: Never mind, I just realized their is MPC as well. You can name any cheap breed (under $10 a chick).

    Hello - always the dilemma isn't it? What to get next.... you may want to try Buckeyes - critically endangered breed. Both MPC & Meyers has them. Meyers does small orders and they seem to be somewhat less expensive on shipping. Your feed store may also get them.

    ETA: they are also a very low key breed - mine have been pleasure :)

    I would consider standard Buff Brahma unless there is some major difference. I prefer all being standard size because of stray cats.

    Have you had success with Meyer's? I thought I heard there 14 and under shipping was more expensive. They have one thing that appeals to me: Lavender Orpingtons.
