I currrently have 9 Production Reds and am getting 10 new layers this spring. I have decided I don't want to get additional PRs and want to get a breed instead that will lay a little longer, but not necessarily everyday. I've been very happy with the PRs I have, but going forward I don't want the sudden drop off of laying that this breed is known for. The hatchery I get my birds from offer the following additional options: Barred Rock, Gold Star, White Rock, Black Australorp, Buff Orpington, Silver Laced Wyandotte or Arcanas. I'd love to hear your experiences, pros and cons of the breeds you've had (if listed above) to help me make my decision. I'm especially curious about how long they generally lay in a consistent manner (# of years) and how often they generally lay (every day, every other day, etc.). Thanks so much!
