    I have an appreciation for several different breeds. But I guess my current favorite are Barred Hollands. They lay white, medium sized eggs 4-5 Xs/week , they are pretty and calm.

    I'm just getting started into serious chicken keeping. Polish and seramas are my favorite. My Polish ladies ( Frezno, Diamond and Cupcake- the first two named by my 3 year old) lay almost every day. I have Silkie chicks, Easter egger chicks, serama chicks, silver Phoenix chicks and Millie fluer d'uccle chicks. I also my incubators runnning busy.

    I gotta love my Rhode Island Reds. They are just my favorite of all the breeds I have had. They're easy going, hardy, and I can always count on them for laying me some eggs! =]

    My favorite breed(s) are Silkies and Cochins. I currently have 4 Silkie hens (Lola, Tina, Ellie Mae and Wednesday), 1 frizzled Cochin hen (Curly Sue) and my Silkie roo (Mister Wu). The Silkie girls usually give me somewhere around 4-5 eggs a week each if the weathers decent and no ones broody (one of my girls currently has 4 chicks so she's not laying anything). My little frizzled hen hasn't started laying yet. She was plucked terribly at her former home, so I imagine most of her energy is going into regrowing her cute little curly feathers ;)
