    Hi! I'm new to BYC. I am considering moving, but in order to sell my house I might have to get rid of my backyard chickens![​IMG]
    If I do get a new house, I'm gonna go and get more chickens!
    What would be a breed of chicken that would be good for families? [​IMG]

    I think it depends a lot on what you are looking for. Good layers for lots of eggs for your family? Dual purpose meat and eggs? A bird that is more of a pet that your children can handle?

    We could never kill our chickens even for meat. So we are probably thinking medium sized good egg laying breeds. I don't really know very many breeds that fit that description.....[​IMG]
