I am looking for a breed of chicken that has consistent genetics(so no easter eggers), does well in Texas climate, and is super docile. I will be handling them daily so this it important that they are easy to catch and it would be nice if they enjoyed people. Laying ability is also important but they only need to lay about 2-3 a week at minimum so they don't have to be super productive. It would also be nice if they didn't wonder a ton because I don't think my neighbors would appreciate chicken crap in their yard lol. Any ideas?

I have a solid 6 foot fence so can most chickens get over that or?

Most chickens will stay inside of a 6' fence ... IF they have enough space ... for some, a solid place to land on top to view what is on the otherside, is an ideal place to land ... then hop down to explore ...

From the first post it didn't sound like you had a fence ...

As you probably know ... Texas is a big and diverse place ... are you on the humid coast, or up in the dry windy panhandle?

The bigger the bird, less likely for them to fly very high when they are adults ...
