1. Barred Plymouth rock very good dual purpose and good to hatch babies
2. RI Red very good layer and dual purpose
3.Americauna and Easter eggers
4. Australorp very good Layer and hardy
5. Buff orphington very good layer and is non aggressive
6.Columbian rock lay good eggs and are very hardy
7. new Hampshire red I enjoy for their laying but also good to hatch babies. They have been more docile to me than R I reds.
8. Leghorns and minorcas I use them to keep my other hens laying in the winter months.

So is this personal favorites or what in our opinion is the most popular?

My personals
1 Barred Rock
2 Rhode Islands
3 Easter eggers
4 Orpingtons
5 Leghorns
6 Australorp
7 Black sexlinks
8 Production Reds
9 White Rocks
10 New Hampshires

I am pretty tame when it comes to chicken breeds. I try to stay with common birds, that atleast promise a good egg or a good compromise between meat and egg. I am not much on silkies, polish, bantams, cochins ---------

I have Australorps, Auracanas and Amber-whites. 10-11 weeks old, so far I think I made good choices.
