Hi! I have 5 red stars, 6 buff orpingtons and an EE. I will be buying more hens in the spring and I just want a VERY efficient egg machine! It would be awesome if the chicken was an excellent forager too and could handle harsh winters since we're in the midwest. I was even looking into getting ducks (the khaki campbells) although I'd rather stick with chickens, but at this point, I just want daily eggs from each hen! I don't care about appearance or novelty.
