Just wondering if anyone else is already plotting and planning what breeds they are going to get next spring. I know it's still only October, by I've already put together a list of breeds I'm going to get from a local breeder next spring. So far I'm planning to get: 4 Barred Rocks 4 Buff Orpingtons (I've raised a few of both of the above breeds, and wasn't that impressed, but the ones I looked at locally are really nice looking so I decided to give them another try. The lady said she thought her Buff orpington rooster was close to 15 lbs, and I believe it. They are very nice looking birds) 4 Standard Cochins (never raised this breed, but I have heard good things about them and decided they would be fun to try) 6 Naked neck/turkens (I purchased 4 of these last summer, but ended up with 3 cockerels and 1 pullet, so I'm going back for more) I'm also thinking about getting some Dominiques, if I can find someone locally that has some of good quality. I'd also like to try some Salmon Faverolles and Dark Brahmas at some point. So who else out there is eagerly awaiting spring? What breed(s) do you plan to get?
