The Chick Selector can help you learn more about the breeds and their characteristics—yes, they are all different. Some breeds are better as meat birds, others for high-quantity egg production and still others are best for backyard companions. If you’re choosing backyard chickens you will want hardy birds that are docile and friendly, such as Buff Orpingtons or Barred Rocks. Araucanas, or “Easter Eggers” are popular options due to their lovely blue eggs.
You can order a straight run of baby chicks, which is less expensive but best if you have a farm and don’t mind a few roosters crowing in the barnyard.
