Hey All, I know you guys see this question A LOT and I've done some reading but would still like to pick all of your brains! I will be a first-timer when it comes to raising chickens (which should be in about 2 years) I'm trying to get as much information as I can and to read up on as much as possible so I'm prepared to take on this adventure when the time comes. Anyways, back topic... I've been looking at the breed charts and I'm getting a bit overwhelmed since I personally know nothing about any of them first hand. I know that it's a matter of opinion and everyone has their favorite breeds, but here are the qualities I'm looking for in chickens... 1. FRIENDLY - this is SUPER important to me because my daughter will be around 3 years old and I want chickens that won't try to attack her or show aggression. 2. Egg laying - I'm embarking on this adventure for the sole purpose of having farm fresh eggs, and to have some fun with these little guys, of course! 3. Multi-colored Eggs - I would LOVE to have a variety of different breeds that live well together so I can get brown, white, green, blue eggs...I think it would be SO fun to check the nest boxes and see all those fun colors. Plus, I've grown up only eating white eggs from the grocery store and I want to try different ones. I will leave it at these three for now. So, do you all have some breed suggestions for me that fit these criteria? I would love to hear about your personal stories you've had with your chickens regarding my criteria. Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out!
