School Chicks again

We've been looking at the chicks for school again. I want to have some chickens which lay blue eggs but am unsure wether to go with pure breeds or hybrids.

Hopefully we'll set 12 eggs in the incubator, and come out with at least 3 girls and 3 boys. I'll keep the 3 girls and grow them up until they're old enough to be integrated with Matilda + Theodore, and school said they'll kill the boys!! I think its a waste to hatch something and then kill it because its unwanted, so I've been emailing around local chicken breeders, farms etc and have found potential homes for the chicks :D

One place said they will take them but want the girls aswell and want some money to look after them at their farm ... I think we might look elsewhere ;)
