This are the breeds that we are trying to decide between: Black Australorp Buff Orpington Red Star/Golden Comet Easter Egger Salmon Faverolle We are looking for good egg production all year long both winter and summer - we live in Kansas. However the chickens also must be good around children too as we have 2 kids - ages 8 and 10. The chickens will free range during the day and be in the coop at night. Is it best to stick with 1 breed? I am wondering if the chickens will bet along better if they are all the same breed? If we get more than 1 breed, we will probably only get 2 or 3 different breeds, probably about 5 of each as I am thinking that we will be getting 10-15 chicks in the spring. Which one(s) would you pick for our situation? thanks for your help!
