I am thinking to add some chickens as well. my chickens are my pets so I am looking for egg laying chickens who will die of old age. another thing I am considering is food consumption (I already have about 30 chickens).
so these are I want:
black copper marans, I already have a pullet and a cockerel. they are very sweet, docile and friendly, low in pecking order.
minorca, had 3 pullets but all of them died, 2 were sick when given to me and the 3rd was hatched in september and did non grow up enough to be ready for the winter. they are so intelligent, sweet and sensitive birds I must have at least 2 of them.
I am thinking of: andalusian, leghorn, light sussex and plymouth rock - for egg laying. considering buff orpington as I have s surprise cockerel and he is totally adorable.
I have 2 white leghorns, one is very curious and friendly and another one is flighty and scared of everything and anything. but I like their huge eggs.
red sex link are my sweetest girls, real pets but they eat like pigs. 1 or 2 would be ok. their huge brown eggs are pretty.
brahma is a good choice. I have a pullet who was hatched by my broody and a 3 yo rescue hen. they are special, sweet, adorable.
I also love my naked necks. mine are good layers. they are bossy, high in pecking order but my other girls like them anyway. they kind of talk to me. just love them. the interesting thing about NNs is that they don't peck on young chicks.
