Hello, I'm new to the board. I apologize if this information is somewhere and I didnt see it yet. I am planning on ordering some chicks in the next few days to add to my current flock of egg layers. I currently have 20 hens and 1 rooster. My breeds consist of Aracaunas, Rhode Island Reds, Black Beautys, and some other type of chicken that is black with brown markings. I average about a dozen eggs a day with this group. Less in the winter of course. From what I have heard, some of those breeds arent the most reliable egg layers. I dont plan on adding more than 6-8 hens to the flock, but would like the most productive. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thankyou!
