    I am stuck on deciding what breeds I should get.

    The choices are:

    Silver Spangled Hamburg

    Reasons I like this breed:
    cold hearty
    pretty ( lol )
    smallish and can possibly get along with my lone hamburg (Ducky is not a good layer and is DH's favorite hen.)

    Columbian wyandotte

    reasons I like this breed:
    good egg layer
    pretty ( lol )
    calm

    What I am looking for in a hen:
    good layer
    decent looking since we have neighbors that can see the run
    ability to get along with Ducky (a splash hamburg)


    I can only get a couple hens so I need to choose well.

    Any thoughts on what you would choose?
