I'm new to the world of chickens and my husband and I just bought a small farm and are planning on adding chickens! What I want to ask is; what breeds would work best for us?
We want them for eggs, but we also have 14 month old twins, so I want hens that will be egg producers and friendly enough for my daughters to interact and play with them. We plan on getting chicks from the start to avoid introducing multiple grown hens to each other.
I've been doing a lot of research and the two that I am most interested in are the Americaunas and the Barred Rocks. Any other suggestions?
