Determining what one is looking for in a chicken is critical.
- Do you want a great layer?
- Do you want a great fryer?
- Do you want a pet?
- Do you want pretty?
- Do you want hardy?
- Do you want heritage breed?
The above ideas are certainly not the only thoughts, but our favorite by far has become the Barred Plymouth Rock.
The roosters are docile, the hens are friendly, and they are a very hardy breed giving medium to large eggs at the rate of around 250+ a year.
These birds are great foragers as well, doing good on their own.
