    Hello,
    Im looking to start my flock in a few months. I will probably just order chicks from Murray McMurray and these are the breeds that interest me, being great layers, great for meat... And Buffs for broodiness...

    Buff Orpingtons, Black Austrolops, Barred Rock and Rhode Island Reds...

    Anyone have suggestions from experience with Murrays birds? My goal is to have a few hens hopefully go broody so I dont have to purchase more chicks...

    Thanks!
