My question is what would be the best breeds of chickens to have with children (1&5), and are good egg layers. I am wanting the type that they will be able to interact with a bit. I live in upstate New York, and I am planning to build a chicken tractor to house them, I am thinking about 4-5 hens and 1 rooster. I have done some research and this is what I came up with, I was thinking: 1. Jersey Giant-Rooster 2. (2)Sussex hens 3. (2)Buff Orpington hens 4. Possibly 1 Jersey Giant- hen I am currently in Afghanistan now, but I will be home soon, I told my 5 year old daughter we would raise chickens when I get back, we have an acre back yard so we should have plenty of room. Any suggestions would be appreciated, like I said I would like breeds that we can interact with, not ones that are shy and run away. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!
