So, having backyard chickens recently became legal in my city. I can only have 4 hens and no roosters, and city officials need to come to my house and make sure the coop and run are suitable for having chickens. I've done tons of research about them, and I'm pretty much ready to submit my official chicken-keeping application to the city, but I'm still not sure on one thing; what breed will I get?! I had my heart set on Easter Eggers because they were said to be cold hearty and very friendly, but then someone recommended a Speckled Sussex. I researched them a bit and they seem even better than the EEs, except for the fact that they tend to go broody very easily. Have any of your SS gone broody? Is there some way I can prevent it? They seem like the perfect breed because they're friendly, curious, cold hearty, and lay often, but I'm hesitant to officially say I'll get them because of this one downside.
