Okay - we are new to this and will be soon buying two to three chicks. I'm having the hardest time knowing what breed/breeds to buy! I have a 5 year old and I want the birds to be gentle and sweet, hopefully at least one decent layer and fairly quiet. We are in a neighborhood Colorado. I've narrowed it down to either barred rocks, buff orphingtons, salmon favorelles and my daughter is set on silkies since she saw them on YouTube. I just heard that I'd need two silkies as they don't do well alone with other birds. If you were me, what mix of two to three birds might you get and why? Thank you!!
