    Well, I'm in CA, I have a family of 7, I'm trying to teach my children to be concious of where their food comes from. We do organic garedning, cloth diapers, I want to basically free range my chickens but put them in at night(so they don't get eaten). I just want a few chickens for eggs and poop. I honestly know nothing about chickens.

    Welcome to the BYC family! Everything you need to know is right here, and there are tons of nice people to answer any question, no matter how newbie-ish. We were all newbies at one time or another. Once you have 'your' own farm raised egg, you'll wonder how you ever did without them. As far as breeds, you can't beat a barred rock. Great egg layer, and so nice-curious. Your family will love them. I know you didn't ask, I just thought I'd offer.
