We are getting ready to go purchase 3 baby chicks this week. The breed's that are available to us are Americaunas, Rhode Island White's, Red Sex Links, Silver Laced Wyandotte's, and Barred Plymouth Rock's. We want high layers but also very friendly. These are for the purpose of supplying our family with eggs and also doubling as pet's for us and our kids. I have done some research on here and so far am leaning towards the Americaunas, Rhode Island White's and Red Sex Links. I'm seeking personal experience and advice on which breed would be best for us. Thanks so much!!
