I am a newbie to having chickens........ I have learned enough by surfing the net, to know that I don't know ANYTHING!!!!! I know that I have an Astralorp (sp???). She is beautiful, friendly, a good layer and I think that she thinks she is human. She'll come to the patio door and peck at it almost as if she wants to come in the house. My other chicken has cream and light brown feathers, ear tufts and feathers on her legs. She is also very friendly. Both lay brown/tan eggs. "Blondie" is smaller than "Black Beauty" I can post pictures, once I get them off my phone. I want more chickens, but I want to know which breed will be a good fit for these two...... These are friendly so I don't want aggressive chickens. No barnyard fights for me LOL. Thanks... I look forward to hearing from y'all!!
