We're working on researching breeds right now to find ones that might be a good fit for us. We'll be getting chickens in the spring most likely, so we've got some time to dedicate to both choosing breeds as well as choosing a local source (PA tri-state area). What we're looking for: Friendly/docile/non-violent Good egglayers Not too broody (won't be having any chick-rearing here) Tolerant of Western PA weather (hot humid summers and cold icy winters) Prefer a medium to large sized egg over a small egg Quieter would be better, but then again I don't mind the sound of chickens... it's more for the neighbors Suggestions? We will have only 3 hens, as we are in an urban setting and are limited the number of "pets" we have, and the chickens count along with our cat. Silly I know. I appreciate the help!
