I am not certain that I will get chickens yet.... hopefully some answers here will help me make up my mind. So here is what I have/want... I have 2 ducks, so they will be in the same 1/4 acre free ranging, and will have a new apartment addition in the duck house at night. I want bantams that don't make a habit of flying into the trees. Ground dwellers are needed due to only a 3-4' fence. I want them for eggs. I'd love silkies, but have read that their egg production is very low. ...and just to make it difficult, I want a weird/pretty chicken. the look of silkies is perfect. Is there anything like them that lay better? oh, and something with a nice disposition too. Thanks!
