    We are thinking of adding a few new breeds to our flock soon. I am so excited! We would like to add:
    1.Lavender Orpingtons
    2.Large Chocolate Orpingtons
    3. Silkies

    We currently only have 5 chickens in our small flock, but I have certainly caught the chicken "bug"! :)

    What are you planning to add to your flock?

    Planning on adding 1. Blue Orps (large fowl) 2. French Black Copper Marans 3. OEGB's

    These won't be a part of the layer flock; instead, they will be a part of my breeding program.

    Oooh -- Salmon Faverolles are beautiful! I cannot find anyone in our area that has them available. I cannot order a lot of them, so I like to be able to just pick a few. Our coop cannot handle too many more chickens.

    Pics when you all get your new additions!!!

    Great idea for a thread! I'm thinking of adding Blue Wheaten Ameraucana chicks, and possibly some Silkies.
     
  7. I am going to get a Golden duck wing and maybe some silver laced OEG'S to!

    As a newbie, I have been enjoying googling some of these breeds that I had not heard of! Sounds like we will be having some beautiful additions to our flocks soon! [​IMG]
