    Which type of chicken would you like to have, but don't, yet? If you could envision your "perfect flock," what types of chickens would it have?

    I'll be the real snoozer here and say that my "dream chickens" are very common types:
    1.) Barred Rock, and I have one I love. :) It's a very New England-y (I'm from Massachusetts)breed.
    2.) Golden Comet, this I also have-- nothing speaks of home & hearth to me more than a friendly, bosom-y red hen!

    My unattainable fantasy: A non-crowing rooster of any variety. Neighbors too close! [​IMG]

    Got dream chickens? [​IMG]Flock fantasies? Please share! :D

    My dream flock consists of Coronations Sussex, Black Copper Marans, Buckeyes, Amerucanas and my ultimate dream bird, a few breeding pairs of beautiful Bielefelder![​IMG]

    Someday in my life, I would love to have the honor of owning some lemon blue OEGBs. They're so beautiful, I need one! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My dream flock is big and colorful and varied. I'm not a big fan of giant monolithic groups of birds. Love my Speckled Sussex and Cochins particularly- they should create some gorgeous mutts!

    My dream flock would be NO PECKING AT EACH OTHER. You have two huge feeders. I bring out treats every day. Two big waterers. There is simply no reason to peck or bully each other.

    My dream flock would only be...

    • A huge, red coop, with a flock of hens of every known breed.
    • A breeder trio of Marsh Daisies.
    • A breeder trio of Swedish Flower Hens.
    • A breeder trio of Madagascar games.
    • A breeder trio of Coronation sussex.

    And, a dream I know isn't possible, to have every single rooster we own, instead of getting rid of them. [​IMG]
