Which is your favorite chicken? Best Chicken Breeds: 12 Types of Hens that Lay Lots of Eggs, Make Good Pets, and Fit in Small Yards ► (Great book!)


A good visual description of the mix of laying hens I would like in the next couple of years... Easter Egger, Olive Egger, Copper Marans, Favorelle, Turken (Naked Neck), Ameraucana, and some variety of white egg layer to set them all off.


"Polish frizzle bantam ... Love this one! One of the more unusual looking chickens you may run across is the Frizzle. Frizzled chickens are not so much a breed, as a type of bird. Any breed of chicken can be bred to be frizzled, but the most commonly seen Frizzles are based on Cochins, Plymouth Rocks, Japanese, and Polish chickens. Can we talk about having an exotic chicken coop, please?" ~ ♥
