We had a bunch of breeds picked out for our first chickens ever (standard, good layers) but the order is mixed up and now our choices are limited to these... auracanas, dominiques, light brahamas, cochins, speckled sussex, golden and silvery wynadots, black sex link. The auracanas were already on our list so we'll get two of those, but what of the other four? We want friendly and good layers, we don't really care about appearance (yet). The brahams look promising as do the dominiques. Agree? We have to get them today (they are going fast). Thanks!
