I am new to backyard chickens, but thought it would be nice to have some to have our own eggs and meat as well as a good chore for my kids (I have 6) to have. I basically know nothing about chickens, so really need advice as to what kind (breed) to get. I have kids, so they will be dealing with them alot, so I want them to have good temperments...no spurring roosters!! We'd also prefer to have white eggs since our experience with brown eggs is that they are a "strange" strong flavor, which may just be something we have to get used to? But, thought maybe we would try to get hens that lay white eggs as long as they have good temperments. Does anyone have any suggestions for me???
