First, this is more of a "what do you think" post, than a breed specific post. If it belongs in another forum, plese feel free to move...
I am planning to add a few additional hens this spring and would like to include some white egg layers that will also add some additional productivity to my flock. Everything I have read says that White Leghorns or "California Whites" are the most productive layers of all, with a great food conversion ratio. However, I live in a wooded area and would prefer to have a darker colored bird that will be better camouflaged when free ranging.
Right now, I am considering both Brown Leghorns and Anconas, and am hoping to hear some feedback on the qualities of each (egg productivity, size of eggs, temperament, hardiness, noise, etc.). Any personal experiences (good or bad), or input would be helpful.
