I am a newbie to raising chickens and this forum. I am looking for advice on what breed would be best for Central Florida. The chickens will be raised primarily for egg laying but I am interested in a good all around dual purpose breed. The coop will be located under the shade of a large oak tree with a decent sized pen (we have too many hawks for them to be free range), so the chickens must take confinement well. They will also have pet status with my young kids so I need a breed that has a friendly demeanor. Buff Orpington was one breed that was recommended to me. Any thoughts?
