We are VERY NEW to the chicken world and I must say, I am blessed to have found this site!!! We are getting chickens from our local 4-H program to raise. Sorry to say they haven't told us what type of chicks we are getting yet That being said, I would like to know everyones opinions on a good breed of chicken. My boys are 8 and 10 and I am sure we are going to be getting more chicks in the future. We want to chickens that are good egg layers and have a good if not GREAT temperment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
