I would recommend Australorporps, EEs and Black Sex Links for blending in and becoming invisible. My Australorp always has her crop full even when I don't feed them and is a decent flier. Being black, she hides well. They are supposed to be good layers, too. My EE is a good flier and looks like a prairie hawk. My sex link hides well, is supposed to be a good layer and doesn't seem to eat much. Feeding them doesn't have to cost that much - You can feed all kinds of kitchen scraps - I use a mini blender on peels and scraps so it is easy for them to eat. Just throwing out peels (like cucumber and carrot) didn't work as they are too long and tough to peck into manageable peices. Mine all love leftover people food as long as we decide no one will eat before it gets moldy. Cooked grains are a delicacy for them! They don't eat much of the commercial food. I am constantly frustrated that they just pick at the scratch and peck food, so that bag lasts a long time. They do like their sunflowers seed - the black ones (BOSS) are best. Like others have said, feeding before bed has a couple advantages. It encourages them to come in faster, is a good time to bond and you can make sure they aren't hurt or starving. Good luck on your move and starting your flock - there should be plenty delish bugs up in the rainy northwest!
