    Pretty much any chicken can live in this environment, they're very adaptable. Any breed will work, and can usually be purchased from a feed store. One breed in specific grabs my attention, and that's called the bantam. They’re smaller than average, but don't lay eggs. They're very fun though.

    i think they do lay eggs otherwise how do you get young chickens??;)
    and you have many sorts of bantams (Houdan bantam, Orpington bantam) most races have a bantam variety

    I have kept a number of different breeds but in the end decided to concentrate on one chicken, one duck and one Goose Breed.
    I now keep Light Sussex Chickens, (Large Fowl) they are great utility birds and I am getting a few eggs from pullets over the winter months too. Abacot Ranger Ducks again, good for utility too - I get around 160 - 180 eggs per year from them and Brecon Buff Geese which are for fun and have just hatched a little Gosling which is Soooo adorable!

    I really fancy some Russian Orloff's like you Sportscar

    I have one white Silkie DaisyMay, Bluebell a hybrid, Jasmine white star,
    Florence, a Sussex star, lilac old Cotswold legbar, Nigella black rock.
    Most have stopped laying, but pets as well. So will remain even though not laying. Need some new stock at some point. Adore Silkie's very funny breed.
    Kate.

    Large Fowl Light Sussex. Fantastic utility birds and pullets lay through most of the winter. I wouldn't be without them!

    I keep Large Fowl Light Sussex. I also keep Abacot Ranger ducks and Brecon Buff Geese.

    I used to keep several breeds but decided to concentrate on one breed of each to try to concentrate my efforts. Previously it was a struggle to keep lots of different pens with different male birds in each to stop them squabbling!

    I keep Wyandottes. The Silver laced has to be THE most beautiful chicken in the World ever....

    There are photos of Silver laced and Gold laced on this page here.

    I'm not so keen on the pencilled or plain color varieties of Wyandotte.
