Hi I joined about a year ago, but we're finally getting some chickens! A few questions: 1) whats your favorite egg laying breed (how many a week) 2) do you vaccinate? 3) how do your dogs do with chickens? we will have a chicken tractor but we have a year old lab and my husband is actually worried his hunting dog will be "ruined". I think I read they should do fine.......but curious on feedback We're getting 3 red star sex links slightly older (ready to lay in about a month), and then 3 barred rocks. Would love any input on those breeds and others! Built our own coop and my kids are ready to help out!
