    Hi, this is my first post,

    I am hoping to get a small flock of three chickens later this year. Ideally I would like one Jersey Giant, one barred rock and one silver laced wyendotte. My first question is are all of those breeds compatible? My second question is roughly how many eggs a week would this flock produce? Thank you for your help.

    Welcome to BYC. Raised together, those birds should get along fine. During their first year of laying I would figure roughly 5 or 6 eggs per hen per week. They might take a slight break their first winter and lay slightly less eggs their second year.
