Best breeds?


Aug 11, 2016
Looking to get 5-6 chickens.anyone have recommendations on chx that lay a good amount of eggs and that are good in smaller yards? We have about .5 acres.
Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. Im sure that you will get as many answers are there are breeds (well, almost). You can check out the breeds section, which is useful as you can tailor your search according to what characteristics you would like. This chart may also be helpful -

You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area -

All the best
Welcome to Backyard chickens. It's a good idea to post on your state thread and ask folks what breeds do best in the climate, and would suit your needs.
Hello there
!! Have much success with your flock!
