Hey everyone! I am looking at expanding my little flock this spring. I am getting in on an order with a few other people so it is easy to get 4 or 6 more of another breed. I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on which breed would be best. (I have a feeling y'all do ) I currently have 2 mutt roos with 3 red star hens. I was looking for a mid-weight bird that can withstand the cold winters. We hit -3 this year at night. I would like a relatively reliable layer that may lay through winter, or atleast a few times a week in winter. My sex-links gave me an egg a day, except for a few days in the bitter cold, and I like the reliability, but I kinda want to expand the look of my flock as well. I would need a docile breed to tolerate my 2 1/2 yo like the ones we have. We have a RIR that the neighbor had to house with his Dominique because she beat the snot outta my little red stars. She refused to coop with them and slept outside all summer and fall. So, I don't want to have that problem, so I guess RIR are out. Like I said, I'd like a different look as well. Thanks for any ideas!!
