    My family and I have decided to get chickens. We are allowed to and have the permit, ect. ect. but my daughter did some research on chickens (via this site) XD and she found very useful information. We can have 6 chickens, so i was wondering if any of you say these are bad breeds for beginners. We are planning to get 1 Welsummer, 1 Black Langshan, 1 Blue Cochin, 1 White Plymouth Rick, 1 Speckled Sussex, and My daughter's favorite, the Golden Campine. WE are using these chickens for eggs and possibly show chickens in the future... any extra advice, ideas, or rejections to our flock?

    ~Thank you all.

    Thank you. We live in an urban area with rude neighbors, do you have any rejections to any of the breeds above?
