You could have one too if you're not careful.
I am on my second batch of chicks for 2013. 50 total: Lakenvelder, silver laced Wyandotte, light brown Leghorn, Ameraucana, Welsummer, Barred Rock and speckled Sussex. The mid March batch will have my 3 favorites, Russian Orloff, golden laced Wyandotte and silver laced cochin. Unfortunately, the feed store that I get my chicks from moves over 10,000 a year so they always have a great selection or will special order in what you want. Talk about an enabler. How do you whittle down the list to 10-12 pullets? My main pleasure with my chickens is the variety and beauty of the plumage as well as the comic relief they provide. Bug control is the reason I got chickens in the first place. You can eliminate some varieties as they aren't well suited for your climate, are too aggressive for a mixed flock, too flighty, too boring... but there are still too many to choose from.
The good part or bad part is I'm in the process of building a new coop.... Maybe it needs to be a little larger.
Chickens are like potato chips...
