so does one color lay more than another?
i though i heard that tuxedo lay the most but i have no clue
I don't think color matters much at all when it comes to laying. One thing I'm not too sure about is the A&M type...they might be breed for laying better.
@007Sean Can you teach us please?

Last week, I had to cull six birds because a raccoon got under the pen and pulled off their toes :barniethrough 1/2-inch hardware cloth (the smallest you'll want to go to let droppings through). So, it works perfectly for the sides but you'll want to block off access to the underside wire unless the pen is well off the ground or there are poop trays underneath.

No, racoons will go right through screen with no problem. Best is 1/2" hardware cloth. Double layer is even better. 1/4" hardware cloth for their flooring works good, most of the poo will still fall through. And its easier on their feet than 1/2".
