Hello, we are new to the forums, so you will be seeing a lot of questions as we are new to chickens too--don't have any yet, so looking for advice. We are trying to figure out which breed of chicken is right for us, so here we hope to get some expert opinions from people with experience. What we would like/need: Winter Hardy, Good forager (they will be kept free range), Non-setter, good egg producer, not aggressive and a bigger bird as we have big cats, bad dogs and predators. From research we have come up with the Jersey Giant, Welsummer, Wyandotte, and Sumatra (but don't think they produce enough eggs--which stinks cause I really like this breed). I like the Jersey Giant due to its size and winter hardiness, the Welsummer for its beautiful plumage and gentle demeanor and the same for the Wyandotte (love the silver laced). However, could you let me know which is the LEAST broody? Or the best candidate for our needs? Feel free to ask more questions if I have not provided enough info for you to make a suggestion. Thank you to all!!!
