I'm planning on getting about 10 chickens. I have never had chickens before, and I'm not sure what kind to get. Here's my situation and what I'm looking for: -chickens that are QUIET. I'm in a residential neighborhood. -chickens that will be fine without heat in the winter (new england) -my main reason for getting chickens is for the eggs, so I need a breed that lays year round. -i will not have a rooster or hatch any eggs -a few will probably end up on the dinner table So far, I'm leaning towards Rhode island reds, barred rocks, or new hampshires, but I'm not sure which one best fits my needs, or if there are others that I should be considering. Any input/suggestions/advice appreciated. Thanks in advance.
