    I've heard that a breeder in the UK put together the best traits for a backyard flock into one chicken---and blue eggs too, just to show how talented her was. It's the cream legbar..... So it seems you couldn't go wrong with one of those in the mix, regardless of the purpose you want your chickens for......

    Here is an itnernet site of someone in the USA who breeds them:

    I don't know anything about the other breeds. I'm not sure that we have blue bell here.... I think I may have seen them referenced on the Omlet forum in UK.

    good luck with your choices...post back afterwards, tell us what you got, why you chose them and how they are!
