Hi everyone! I've finally convinced my husband to get chickens and I couldn't be happier! We have about 3/4 of an acre of land, but a portion of that is woods so we don't have a ton of space. I just purchased this coop yesterday: http://www.hayneedle.com/product/boomerandgeorgetreetopschickencoop1.cfm

I want the chickens to be comfortable and have enough space, so I was looking at getting 2. What breeds would you recommend? I want ones that are friendy, lay eggs (duh :), and I also want ones that will do it for a longer period of time, even if it slows down. I'm a huge animal lover so I don't plan on using them for meat or getting rid of them once they stop laying.

Does anyone have any suggestions? It's slightly overwhelming with all the research I've been doing!

Thank you!

I would recommend australorps or wyandottes. They are large, friendly and pretty quite. Good layers too.
