Ok, we currently have 3 EE ladies and DH said we could get (up to) three more pullets. One point of contention that has come up is that he likes the Dominiques and I prefer Barred Rocks. We both agree that we want one with the barred pattern but we only want to get one barred bird, the other two are going to be an Australorp and a Speckled Sussex. Please help us break the deadlock! Prime criteria are cold hardiness, egg laying awesomeness, and personality(friendly/easily handled is a must, quirky/funny is a bonus).
