    Looking to add some ladies to our flock and i'm wondering what the best breeds would be for a flock of 6 or 7. I was thinking about orpington or Barred Rock, I already have 2 Australorps, so i'm not interested in getting any more. What else should I be looking at that I haven't heard about.

    I just got a Speckled Sussex and a Barred Rock (chicks) after reading the breed reviews on this site saying they are docile and friendly. I have a Buff Orp. she's very sweet and lovely, I got her for her golden feathers...also have an Australorp, and a Rhode Island Red. RIR is bossy and opinionated, with a strong personality which people say goes with the breed. (in spite of that she's my favorite.) I have a SL Wyandotte who is well behaved and calm, but standoffish. I don't know if that is typical or not.
