Meet the Breeds: Backyard Flocks

Meet the Poultry Breeds

A few key factors should be considered when choosing appropriate breeds for your backyard flock such as egg production capability, space required, hardiness etc. We’ve outlined a few key terms that will be featured in our Meet The Breeds spotlight below:

Friendliness: Are they known to be aggressive?

Hardiness: How well can they handle colder climates?

Egg Production: How many eggs can they produce in a year?

Egg Color: While not necessarily a major factor, it’s cool to know!
