Hello! I'm brand new to backyard chickens after longing for years for a flock. Now I'm finally jumping in and getting a flock of 4 for my 1/4th acre suburban yard. However, I have 6 chicks on hold waiting to get picked up end of this month! Please help me narrow down my choices.. I'm slightly vain so I want a good looking flock and lots of different colored eggs. I live in Ohio so I need cold and heat hardy, and they need to be quiet and docile. I don't care about dual purpose, I'd rather more eggs than meat. Here are my six choices: Cream Legbar Partridge Plymouth Rock Golden Laced Wyandotte Buckeye Black Australorp Welsummer I'm leaning towards cream Legbar for blue eggs, GLW for tan eggs, Australorp for brown eggs, and Welsummer for terra cotta eggs. But living in Ohio I really want that buckeye.. Such hard choices! Any thoughts for my flock? Should I get 5 or 6 of then in case one turns out to be a rooster or one doesn't make it? I have friends that will take in extra chicks. Anyone have personal stories with these chickens? I've heard Welsummer aren't great layers and are noisy. I'd like 200~ eggs from each a year.
