    Congratulations. Well done!!

    If you could tell us something about why you want chickens we might be able to make some suggestions. Do you want eggs, meat, eggs and meat, pets, pets and eggs, to show, to sell, to breed, to eat bugs, deposits for a compost heap, something else or some other combination?

    I would say Delawares. Beautiful birds, and great. Although your talking about a hatchery... right? I would go with the Rhode Island Red as well, WONDERFUL egg producers, and Red Stars/Sexlinks lay amazing, but your wanting to show, so I would go with a Delaware! Of course, I love these birds, so I would suggest them to anyone. Maybe get a few different breeds?
