    I have no idea about types, but I have been trying to do some research about Rhode Island Reds. I hear that they are good for the climate and produce a daily egg.

    Are RIR mean or temperamental?

    Greetings from Kansas, blueliquid, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! Congratulations on your first chickens. RIRs are great. You might also consider a mixed flock - different birds with different personalities - different colored eggs. Check out the breeds section below if you want to research other breeds! Best of luck to you!
