    I am trying to decide what breed to order, I've narrowed it down to 3 breeds, Barred Rocks,White Rocks,and Buff Orpingtons.

    I want a dual-purpose chicken, but I'm not sure which breed is the "Best".

    Which breed do you prefer and why?
    Any suggestions?

    I don;t care for orpingtons--I find them boring. White and barred rocks are the same breed, different varieties. Whites tend to be larger than barreds. They both have the same inquisitive and human interactive personality.

    The Rocks re great, but love the buffs for the freezer.
