    Red sexlinks.Friendly and good layers.

    Newhampshireds too.They are good egg layers friendly but competitive.

    Black seclinks.Friendly good egg layers.

    Certain bantams.

    At one pont I did like easter eggers.Their friendly and lay good.

    Buff Orpingtons but too are tough.Rhode Island reds too.

    i've heard that nh reds and rhode island reds are very aggressive. i have 4 orphintons now and they are very friendly but the egg production is okay. how about a wyandotte, sussex, or americana.

    New Hampshires are very good birds and only are aggressive when challenged.

    Silver laced Wyandottes are ok but do not make good friendly egg layers.Good egg layers not friendly.No matter how much I spent with my silver laced she hated me i babyed her nonstop nothing worked.....
