Between bought and rescued/adopted birds, we have Dominiques, Red Stars, Black Stars, Ameracaunas/Easter Eggers, Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpington, Leghorns and Delaware, plus a couple oddballs. The Doms are the shyest of the bunch, outside one oddball chicken that seems convinced she's destined for the crockpot and won't come near us. There are so many fine breeds, it's hard to go wrong. You're just as well off to determine what color eggs you'd like to be receiving.
Our Leghorns lay white, and the Ameracaunas lay blue-green. The rest are all browns in varying shades.
One day I'd love to have some Black Copper Marans and get the real dark brown eggs. But those birds are pricey.
