Hey guys. I always wanted backyard chickens, and I just moved into a new house, so I planned on doing it soon. I have these chukar partridges that are laying eggs, and I think it's cool, so it's pretty much prompted me to get a coop together and buy some chickens. I have no idea what breeds I should consider. I know of a few common ones. I want good egg layers, but I also would like to avoid any breeds that are noisy hens. I live in a neighborhood that has houses in pretty close proximity (actually, about as close as you can get to others houses). I by no means live in the country, in fact, it's a semi urban area. Nonetheless, chickens are allowed so long as they are not a public nuisance. Almost all of my neighbors have dogs that bark, so I figure as long as I stay under that decibel standard I should be ok. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated, as well as any advice on how to avoid problems with neighbors. Thanks!
