Hi! You guys have posted a wealth of information on this site!!! We live on 80+ acres w/ DH, myself, DD (15 yo), DS (8 yo), 1 Blue Heeler and 2 cats. We had chickens about 16 years ago but they were old when we inherited them and never replenished our layers. Since we inherited those hens and 1 mean rooster we never had to decide what breed to keep. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know. DH loves brown eggs by the way.
