    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.

    Our buff orpington rooster is very docile, but looks out for the hens.

    There are quite a few great brown egg layers, depending on your focus. If you'd like to have a standard size chickens 'long term' flock, Delawares or Orphingtons are a good choice. They'll lay consistently for a longer period of time.

    Did you want to start with chicks or get ready to lay pullets? You'll have a lot of information by just searching for previous posts on various topics.
