    I have found Warrens and Black Rocks good layers and friendly birds.

    Orpingtons are docile and lay a plentiful amount of eggs [​IMG] Brahmas are sweeties too.

    Red Stars. An egg a day, at least, all year round. Appealing and friendly. Golden Comets are popular for laying in this area, and they are friendly and funny.

    Black australorp and light brahma - those are my best layers and sweetest, too.

    In our book you can't beat a Buff Orpington, Large dual purpose birds (meat and eggs) ours lay a jumbo sized brown egg year round.
