I have 7 SLW but am looking to purchase some more chickens from quality breeders shortly here in the future. I am trying to decide what breed(s) I'd like to raise. So I'd like to know why you like/raise certain breeds and any suggestions are welcome. Also, OT but I have some wire that is 1/2" x 1". Is that small enough openings to use to keep predators out? Thanks!!!!
