    What is your favorite breed of chicken, and why?

    I think I really like welsummers:
    they are pretty in a way that provides good camouflage
    they are good foragers
    they are decent layers
    they can go broody but not too much
    they are good winter survivors
    big enough to eat

    The only con about them is they are a bit skittish compared to other brown layers, but that can be good for their survival.

    I also really like bhramas, they are a great duel-purpose bird, great eggs and large enough for a good meal (or weeks worth if you cook him right). They are also cute and talkative.

    This reminds me about the days i was raising chicken. This is what any farmer is always concerned about. I like the abor Acre (AA) breed of broilers. this is because the grow very fast and has good weight at 7 weeks. there are However other breeds of broilers with other features that farmers prefare other than AA.

    My favourite breed of chicken is the naked neck. This breed of chicken has no feathers on the neck and the neck region appears longer. Its cheap and easy to rear on free range, a prolific layer and is quite resistant to diseases.

    I like layers the most. I like it when I pick eggs in the evening. Sweet feeling, sometimes I get much that I sell and other times give out to neighbors. Saving some capital to build a substantial coup for 100 of them and do them commercially.

    We have several different kinds, but my two favorites are Buff Orpingtons and Copper Morans. They both seem to be excellent layers, yet bulk up fast enough to eat, and they both appear to be pretty laid-back calm birds. Plus, people really like the blue eggs from the Coppers!
