I'm going to pick out chicks tomorrow & I'm conflicted. Can you help? I want chickens for eggs-- I keep reading about how wonderful and friendly and beautiful the buff orpingtons are & every time I look at the pics, they call to me, but I also keep reading that they are not the best egg producers. If I get 2 Black Austrolorps, 2 Barred Rocks & 2 Buff Orpingtons, will the first two breeds make up for what the BO's don't produce? Or do you think I'll be more happy in the long run with a couple of more productive birds, like RIR's or something? I just need eggs for my family of 4 (one being a toddler). Thanks!
