I want everything Well, at least I admit it, right? I want a pretty egg basket and need docile birds that will lay large eggs in prolific enough numbers to make themselves useful. I live in Mass and they will be in an insulated, unheated coop with no extra lighting. I'm thinking: 1 black marans 1 welsummer 1 buff orp 1 EE My main concern is that I won't get enough eggs come winter -- what's your experience esp with the dark eggers? I'm thinking the EE may take the winter off, hoping for 5 from the BO and at least 3/4 from the dark eggers, is this a reasonable guess?
