    We're going to increase our flock for more eggs this spring and want to add a couple of different breeds. Does anyone know if Iowa Blues and Chanteclers are good layers? Personalities?

    HI Coloradochick!

    I have CHanteclers and I really like them! [​IMG]
    They are awesome layers and quiet, friendly birds.
    I have 17 hens ( 3 of them are not Chanties) and I get on average 13 eggs a day and they have been laying for only 8 weeks now. So good winter layers. [​IMG]
    They are winter hardy, love to free range and are easy keepers.
    The roos (I have two Chanteclers and one BO) are very calm and non aggressive. I love these guys.

    Hope this helps!

    Morning Nicole! Thanks for the info, it does help. We've got the standard good layers now, RIR, BO, NR, BL AUST, but I want to get a new breed and the Chanteclers looked liked they were really pretty and it said they were decent layers.
