I'm looking to replace my layer flock. The birds will be in a free- ranging set up with 4 ft Premier electric poultry net as their fence, and a mobile coop to sleep in. What breeds are the best layers, but don't fly too much? I'm open to sex-links, Production Reds, RIR, BR, Leghorns, pretty much anything that lays large amounts of eggs. I have some Andalusians and they were terrible for flying. They lived in the orchard more of the time than in their pen! Had to move them to a permanent pen with a 6 ft fence instead of being out in the field with the other hens. I assume this is due to their skinny, light body type, so maybe Leghorns wouldn't be a good choice either? Are Sex links and Productions heavy enough that they won't escape? Does anyone have California Greys or California Whites? Those look really promising. How are they in regards to flying?
