My husband and I want to get some egg laying chickens for the backyard. We have a 6lbs dog and a 3yr old son and are hoping for some advise for which breeds to get. Everyone says to get the chickens at feed stores, which is fine that seems easy to do. We'd like 3 chickens that will lay lots of eggs, be friendly let us hold them from time to time and in general nice additions to the family. Obviously the prettier the better! Any ideas or tips?? Thanks!
