So I bought some chickens for eggs for our family and even for selling some eggs. My customer base has increased beyond what I will be producing and I wanted to add about five more. Right now I have all brown egg layers which is fine. I am wondering which breed would be more prolific but cold hardy at the same time. I can do the light thing if I have to in the winter but I need some girls that will lay some eggs instead of buying more chickens that aren't as good at laying.
Which ones? White Leg Horn or Rhode Island Red? Or if there is another breed to think about.
Right now I have, Barred Rocks, Australorps, Buff Orpingtons, Silver Laced Wyandottes, & a Black Star
