When it does come time I know exactly what breeds of chicken I would like. I know the right thing to do would be to rescue some generic battery chickens but I think if I went to do it my heart would melt and I would end up with a dozen or more, instead of just a couple, and my husband would kill me (followed by the chickens). Instead, my Dream Chickens (yes I said it!) would be as follows:
Silkie - How could you not want at least one of these? They look like muppets!
Auracana - These South American chickens lay the most beautiful blue eggs. Boiled eggs for breakfast would be a real treat.
