We're planning to begin raising chickens for eggs. We live in an urban area and have a medium-size backyard. Our coop will probably be about 6x8, and we're hoping to have about 12 birds. I'm hoping you can recommend a breed based on these criteria: 1. Egg production. This is our main purpose in having chickens, and at present we don't plan to raise them for meat. 2. Temperament. We have neighbors on all sides and since these are our first chickens we want to make it easy on ourselves. 3. Appearance. We'd like it if at least some of the birds are beautiful to look at, even if that means less egg production from those particular birds. 4. Do well in a confined space. Our backyard isn't tiny, but it isn't huge either so our chickens will have to be able to get along in a relatively contained space. We have a vegetable garden in the back too so that is another consideration. Thanks for your help!
