This old- time favorite lays brown eggs and is a popular dual- purpose breed. This breed is very friendly and does well in cold weather. Plymouth rocks have high egg production, a meaty body, a docile personality, and good hardiness all characteristics that would be a great addition to your flock! These lovely birds have black and white barred feathers, with the roosters slightly lighter in color than the hens.

We're raising chickens at our house! This little lady is on our list of chickens wants. She's a black copper maran. This kind of chicken lays chocolate colored eggs! Eggs can come in lots of cool colors and next year I hope to have enough chickens to get natural Easter eggs--no dyes needed!
This breed is much like the Buff Orpington in it is very calm and quiet. It is a dual-purpose breed, but are often kept for their pet-like qualities. They are also loosely feathered and look bigger then they actually are. This color of Orpington is a combination of the black and white colors. The color blue in all poultry does not breed true; they produce black and splash offspring as well as the blue color.
