I have some questions (maybe alot) about chickens. First off, we live farm with other farm animals so we know the basics of animal care so its not like we are completly in the dark. We are however new to chickens and plan on building a coop in the spring. Not into any fancy breeds, just the basic heavy-standard breeds, mainly for egg production. A few we have in mind are the R. I. Reds, Production Reds, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, etc. We are thinking of around 15-20 hens. 1. First question I have is, what is the main differences from the production red to the rhode island red as far as temperment, egg production and all around care? I know they are alittle different in color but i'm not interesed in any of that info. 2. For 15-20 hens should I only have one rooster or two? What are the advantages or disadvantages having one or two? 3. I have read that some red roosters can be abit aggressive then heard they are not at all. What breed of rooster do you recommend for a flock that has usually has a good personality. Main reason I ask is because a have two little girls who LOVE chickens and dont want to be scared of them. Thats all the questions I can think of right now, Thanks in advance for your answers.
