Hey everybody! I'm new to the forum and will be the proud owner of an old 3 acre farm in Rhode Island in a couple of weeks. The property has a HUGE chicken coop existing. I'm going to fix it up a little and by spring move 15 chicks from the brooder out to their new accommodations. (about 100 square feet inside the coop) I want to keep layers, and have to order 5 of each breed from the hatchery I chose. I'm thinking Rhode Island Reds, Silver laced wyandots, and ameraucanas. This is mostly hobby production- giving away extras to friends and family. I think I want the Ameraucanas for their interestingly colored eggs, and the other two should produce nice big brown eggs. Anything I should try instead?
