    Buff Brahma,
    Copper Marans,
    Blue lades Wyandotte,
    Speckled Sussex,
    Red Silkies??

    Which breed since I can only get one breed for now since I already have 8 chickens.... (mom's rule, and plus we live in the city and there is a law of 20.)

    Depends what you want them for I suppose. Eggs? Or for sitting on eggs for you? Or just for prettiness?

    Quote:Cool! I also meant to ask, what are your other chickens? It's a good idea to go for breeds that should (hopefully) have the same temperaments. I have Marans in a mixed flock and they get on well. They're big fat fatties compared with all my other birds though...
