When I started with chickens last year, I had EEs, Cochins, Salmon Faverolles, Welsumners, Brahmas, Buff Orpingtons, and Marans. I chose my chickens based on egg colors so I could have a pretty egg basket. LOL< who knew there were so many kinds of chickens?? I thought a chicken was a chicken. Any way after a year, I have narrowed my favorites down to the Cochin (my hands down favorite), EEs and Marans. I still have a few Salmon Faverolles left but have rehomed the other breeds. What is your favorite breed and why? Just curious.
