I have just recently gotten my permit to have backyard chickens in Jacksonville, Fl and i'm doing my research to find out which hens would be best for my family. I have read up on quite a few forums on here and taken my notes but I've yet to find anyone from here in Jax that could weigh in. So my query is this; I've got 2 kids and friendly dog, so i need a friendly breed that doesn't mind being besties with my naturist daughter, social enough not freak when my dog wants to hang out, a good egg layer as we use a lot of eggs, and we like our extra large brown eggs. I've considered a few breeds, could anyone let me know if any of the following is not a good idea and why? Or maybe if there is another breed I've not listed that could be a better fit? I'm not really looking for beauty, as most of our pets are rescues and we know true beauty comes from within. Amber Whites Austrolorp New Hampshire Plymouth Rock Speckled Sussex THANK YOU MUCH!!!
