Favorite poultry bird: CHICKENS
Other: We had 4 chickens that I cared for and I loved them and I could carry them around and they would follow you and... and ahh I miss them (fox got to two of them, the other two died of old age)


also I really like the way rooster look... I know a small farmer guy and sometimes I just stare at his roosters... they are just so pretty!! Even though they are not always so nice....

I HAVE A QUESTION

so I plan on getting chickens in the future. Not in the near future but after I'm out of college. I want a couple of hens, as pets mainly but I want a good bit of eggs too! Any breeds you recommend?
I had two rhodesian reds on barred rock and a little wild looking hen with a tail like a rooster (I am just guessing as at the time my parents had a house-mate person thing and he found some chicks at a flea market and felt bad for them)

Do you want bantams or large fowl?

I'm a bantam person myself. But if you like large birds, buff orpington are great pets and very sweet birds. So are standard cochins if you can find them.

If you do like bantams I am big on the cochins, silkies, serama, and japanese. I also really like polish and they come in a standard and bantam variety.

However none of the breeds I listed are super great egg layers except the buff orpingtons. They do lay but not super duper every single day and the bantams lay tiny eggs. I don't mind and I actually have 2 pet roosters so they don't lay at all. :P
