Hi there! I've had several breeds of chickens for the past 4 years. Really love my Buff Rocks. Gentle disposition and good egg layers. In need of more chickens and I am looking at the Buff Orpington's. I want and excellent layers with good dispositions and meat yield. I would also like a rooster with a good disposition. I had to get rid of my last rooster. He got pretty mean and I just don't have the temperament to put up with mean critters. I want to be safe and comfortable around my animals and the safety of my animal sitters is paramount also. I'm open to suggestions for other chicken breeds that fit my requirements if you have any. Thanks!
