    I live in Maine, so I've been researching cold weather hardy birds. I have 14 now, I think I would add:

    hamburgs
    chantecler
    more silkies
    oooh, and a barred rock (they look like loons, don't you think?)

    I would also love a pair of peafowl....maybe this winter I'll get an incubator for christmas and go for hatching my own babies next spring. [​IMG]

    I am very happy with my blue/black/splash and buff orps but I could always have more. I would wish for more coops to raise more of the beautiful roos of those breeds. I love to look at them. Everything else is poultry but not chickens.

    Appleyards Ducks
    Sebastopol Geese
    Giant Grey Dewlap Toulouse
    Giant Buff Dewlap Toulouse
    Giant Embdens

    And a beautiful pond for them to live around.

    - Jersey Giants
    - Australorps (blue ones would be awesome!)
    - Buff Orpingtons
    - Delawares
    - Dorkings
    - Barred Plymouth Rocks

    My husband wants some geese! [​IMG]
