Hmmm still not sure. I would want something that gives a decent amount of meat, lays daily or almost daily and isnt just plain white.

We are in Colorado at about 9,000 feet, we got the run from Murdoch if you have them in Oregon., the poultry mesh Home Depot. Glad you like it.

Heritage line RIRs. And I can get all I want, all I have to do is ask....and it's tempting. But I'm thinking that this current flock will be my last and I am slowly going to just dwindle out of chickens.

I just had some of the finest Delawares in the country sent to me, for free, this spring and I couldn't really keep them and develop their lines, so I kept two WRs sent at the same time and two of the Dels and let the others go. The Dels eat A LOT of food, so I really couldn't justify their keep and the money at this time in my life. I felt horrible about it, but the timing was just...off. You know what I mean? Same with getting the HRIRs.

Bee, you ought to consider writing a chicken raising book, you always give sage advice.

I considered it several times...even had two or three working titles. But..then..writer's block and nothing would come. Seems the only way I can write about chickens is to answer questions of a spontaneous nature. Then one would think..why not answer those questions, copy and paste both to a document and start to accumulate and organize the info?

But...for some reason I just can't get there from here. Funny, huh?

The last title would have been a hit, too..."Chicken Diapers... and 101 Other Things Chickens Don't Need".... :D

I wonder if there could be a way where you could just copy and paste every one of your posts and just lay them out on some simple site, and eventually you would just keep adding to it!
I find you brilliant!
Also I haven't taken any pictures of my pullet or roo... Because... Hmmm ... I may be in denial?!? (Don't laugh at me)... Do BR hens crow??
And if not, , please tell me around what age do roosters begin to crow?

Hmmm, no limit to time, money, or space, and yet limited to one breed (added to existing flock?)...Well, sorry, but I need 2 breeds, I can't imagine my dream flock with only 1 of these, Chantaclers (all colors) and Cream Legbars (for blue eggs). Of course, I have neither.

I have both of those! Lol and they are my least favorite. Weird how that happens. The Chanteclers are mean and the Cream Legbars are so bloody fast and skittish.

I would choose Sussex (any color) or Blue laced Red Wyandottes. I've struggled with my Wyandotte's attitude but things are very good now.
