I plan on getting some new chickens soon, as I only have 2 hens, and I was wondering what some good breeds are.
Right now I have a Buff Orpington and a Silver-Penciled Plymouth Rock.
I'm generally looking for:
- Breeds that work with my current hens
- Will tolerate the weather; it gets very hot in summer (90 degrees+), and cold in winter (50 degrees and less)
- Good layers
- Not super flighty
I was already wondering about Amber Whites, because they seem to lay good, and their white feathers will help keep them cooler in summer (right?).
And btw I'm a noob to the site but I've had 2 different flocks of chickens.
