Hey I hail from the midwest, just starting up my chicken flock. Looking for a mixed flock of all black chickens with hopefully a variety of egg colors and LOTS of eggs. Still doing research. Thanks all!

Welcome To BYC! Please make yourself comfortable and ask any questions you may have. Based on your request I suggest the Black Australorp. Brown egg layer, lots of eggs, hardy, docile, calm, produce longer, mature earlier, and roosters can make great meat birds. Black Sexlinks are mainly black with a little bit of brown on the breast and are amazing egg layers, friendly, and hardy. These are my Black Australorp pullets. They are 6 months old in the photo.

X2 on Birdrain92's suggestions. Black Sex Links are my very favorite chickens (even though they are hybrids) as they are very friendly and hardy egg laying machines that consistently churn out more than 300 large brown eggs per hen per year with double yolks not being uncommon. Black Australorps are my favorite standard breed as they are extremely hardy, calm and gentle (good lap pets), and excellent layers of brown eggs. But whatever breeds you decide to get, good luck with your flock. :eek:)
