    In terms of beauty, behavior and usefulness, my suggestion among the common breeds to you would be:

    1. Gold Laced Wyandottes
    2. Silver Laced Wyandottes
    3. Barrred Plymouth Rocks aka Barred Rocks
    4. Buff Orpingtons
    5. New Hampshire Reds
    6. Rhode Island Reds
    7. Amerucanas aka Americanas aka Easter Eggers aka EEs

    But expect everyone to have a different opinion. Beauty, of course, is in the eye of the beholder.

    Barred Rocks are winners all around. They look nice and are nice behavior-wise too. Great breed! [​IMG]

    Honestly, I have yet to see a breed of chickens that isn't beautiful. However, I was so partial to my Golden Campine roo......they are hen feathered so not what most would expect of a roo and the hens are equally beautiful. I find them elegant without an over abundance of frou and flash. Just stunning beauty. Here is a pic of a roo (my now gone, beloved, Sigmund)

    Silver Laced Wyandotte then Brahmas and Cochins....

    The Light Brahmas are gorgeous too and very sweet. This is Lilly at 7 weeks:
