Hens and Roosters

 

My dream flock would consist of one of probably every breed. I like chickens this much.

I am totally egg obsessed and trying to achieve the most colorful egg basket (and colorful chickens) in my suburban backyard. Seasonal availability and hatchery minimums are somewhat a hinderance, so I’m dependent on what my local feed store happens to carry or what I can produce myself using my incubators by mixing hens and roosters of different breeds, thus getting a variety of eggs.

My current laying birds include Easter Egger, Buff Orp and Blue Wyandotte. I am getting more chicks next week: Black Dominant Copper and an Olive Egger. I wanted to get a white or cream egg layer. The store is getting a new shipment the end of the month.

Can’t decide between White Leghorn, Sicilian Buttercup, Speckled Sussex or…. Columbian Wyandotte-just because I want a white chicken and they’re so beautiful even though they lay brown eggs.
