    Hi all. I'm new to this chikin bit. But I've already gotten a TON of help from here setting up my coop and such so I knew I had to join. Hoping to learn a lot more, maybe even throw in an idea here and there.

    Those are all docile and good laying breeds. Actually Cinnamon Queens are not a breed, but a hybrid. Cinnamon Queen is one of a number of labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links, which are produced by crossing a red gene rooster with a silver gene hen. The resulting offspring can be sexed by color at hatching (male chicks are whitish, female chicks are reddish), and they are egg laying machines, outlaying either parent breed. You will get loads of eggs from those two ladies. :eek:)
