There are several reasons to have chickens. .Eggs .Pets .Food .Money What are some breeds I should consider? .For eggs: Some breeds you need for Pure egg production are,the Leghorn or Hybrid birds (sex links). Leghorns can lay a minimum of 300 eggs,saying,per year.And it is very rare to ever have one brood.The black rock (black sex links),are a great hybrid.Churn out at the most,280 eggs to 300 per year.Red sex links are another good hybrid.Churning out at least 300 eggs per year.Australorps are probably the top of all egg layers.They were recorded laying the most eggs,PER YEAR. .For pets: Some of the breeds come naturally nice. One of those is the Production red.Docilest breed I have ever owned. Black sex links are a good lap pet as well.Most Hybrid birds are.Silkies take it to the house level pet.Great breed of chicken in all respect! .Food: The Rhode Island Reds are eggs,pets,and meat birds.Cornish rocks are the main type of chicken inthe meat iindustry .Money: When I say "Money" I mean shows etc.Silkies,frizzles,Polish all fiy that category,and selling them also can get you , hungreds.Swedish flower hens can too.
