So new to chickens, but am going to have them this coming spring but want the easiest ones to raise for egg production. Any suggestions?
I agree that for egg production, you can't go wrong with the White Leghorns. They are the best! They are also usually the first to start laying. But if you are a first time chicken owner you need to be more prepared with them.Glad you joined us!
There is no real "best chicken," since each person has difference preferences. However, if egg production is your main goal, I would recommend getting some White Leghorns (layers of white eggs) or Sex-links (layers of brown eggs). You could also try a dual purpose breed, such as Wyandottes, Australorps, Easter Eggers, Plymouth Rocks, and Rhode Island Reds.
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask! We're all here to help the best we can.
