    If you are raising chickens for eggs,you need to get a Golden Comet.They lay large brown eggs,about 1-3 eggs a day per hen,they are smaller than most breeds of chickens so therefore you wont have to feed them as much.I have 13 hens and get about 15 eggs a day!They are friendly chickens,but aren't usually broody. You might find these chickens under many names
    and here they are,Golden sex-link,Golden comet,Cinnamon queen,Red star and Golden buff.

    I need to find some of these hens that lay 3 eggs a day. I could reduce my flock by 66 %.
