Hi All, we are new to the chicken hobby and are researching breeds trying to decide which one is best. We want a breed that lays well and is generally docile. Here are some that we are considering. Brahma, Orpington, Australorp, and Sussex. In your opinions and experience which one of these is best? As for the roosters, do any of these breeds produce roosters that are a bit more laid back than others? Any other information and experience related to these breeds would be great! Thanks, your opinions matter.
