Taking advantage of the polls, here...
I picked the first one!
Are you saying as a mix? Or three separate breeds? I'm confused...
Why is the Salmon Faverolle list in all choices,except the pick your own? Pick your own is sort of like a write in during an election.
Salmon Faverolle, EE, Polish.
You get pink, green/blue, and white eggs. You get a fluffy sweet bird, a spunky sweet bird, and a mystery of a sweet bird. You have a great forager, a great lap pet, and a great in-between.
Now I know why I have too many birds: I simply cannot decide so I want them all!
EE, D'Uccle and Polish.
Because salmon faverolle is my favorite breed!
I like this!
I picked Salmon Faverolle, Easter Egger, Silver Laced Wyandotte because they'd be easier to house together without having separate coops. It can get tricky with breeds that can't always see well like Silkies and Polish. Bantams can mix, but egg size is small. I like lacing better than barring for feather patterns, which is why I skipped the Barred Rocks.That leaves the Cochin and the Delaware... both of which I like. So I visualized the flock walking around together and thought the Wyandotte is different enough yet compatible for purely aesthetic reasons. The Delaware is a close 2nd. Cochins... they're so calm and sweet though. You can find that in the other breeds as well though.
If I did a write-in, I would choose Salmon Faverolle, EE, silver and golden Wyandotte, Delaware, LF Cochin in Blue or White, Dark Brahma, FBCM or Wheaten Marans, Speckled Sussex, and something Partridge colored in a pear tree.
