Hello, my name is Vicki. My husband and I have had backyard chickens for quite sometime. We have had buff orphingtons, cinnamon queens, we now have barred rocks. If I remember right the cinnamon queens and buffs didn't get along very well. So that's when we decided to try the barred rocks. They are a very gentle and friendly bird, when they see me come out with my pink bucket they all start flocking to my feet. I fill their bucket and start back to their pen and they're still at my feet.....some will eat from my hand and allow me to pet them. We were setting outside today enjoying the sun, a glass of tea set beside my chair, one was so curious she thought she would try a sip......But we are wanting to get more hens but want some that will lay and set...does anyone have any suggestions as to what breed we should get. We are leaning toward RIR, or more buff orph...Thank you for your suggestions..... Have a great day!!!
