I would LOVE some opinions and advice on some chickens. My hubby and I have had 12 chickens for about 3 years now. They are just your basic white chickens. (sorry, I haven't a CLUE what kind) They have been great egg layers giving us HUGE (almost duck size) eggs even though the chickens seem to small for that size egg. So, I want to increase my "flock" and am building a whole new coop in a whole new location where I can view it from the house. I want more "fancy" chickens. What kind I have only a semi-clue. I know I want two Polish. They are a childhood memory of mine (my mother called them hippy chickens). MAYBE a couple of silkies. These would be my "purty" chickens. But for the rest, I would like to get some good egg layers. What type of chicken would be my better bet? I know that white chickens lay white eggs and brown chickens lay brown eggs. Both taste the same to me but these weird people around me I sell my surplus eggs want brown eggs (they INSIST they are better). Also, would these other chickens be ok in with my "purty" chickens? I can do separate coops and yards if necessary but it would be easier to have them all together. I don't want to seem totally stupid but yea, I guess I'm pretty clueless. I live in SE Kansas and it does get pretty cold in the winter so I need "hardy" chickens. We do have the ability to heat the coop but that doesn't help them when they are outside.
