Which breed would you guys recommended welsummer,delaware or rhode island red
post #2 of 3

All good breeds. Welsummer should give you dark eggs, RIRs are bullies of a mixed flock.

Read these selection charts and select from all the great breeds out there. You may find others to consider.

I've had RIR (and they've been great girls, no bullying) so I'd want to try something different. You could check out the breed reviews to read member's comments about each:
