I am new - had three hens and now have none, so am planning my next clucks. I want some nice standard chickens that don't mind being handled but are really good egg producers. I also like having a mix because I can only have 6 chickens where I live. I know I want barred rocks because my barred rock was my favorite of my last little flock before the fox got her. I want lots of eggs, too. Would the following mix be good for what I'm looking for? Suggestions are very very welcome! Australorp Buff Orpington Barred Rock Rhode Island Red - or should I get Black or Red Sexlink - which is nicer? (and are Black Stars the same as Black sexlink?) Thanks!
