I've decided I need (yes need lol) more chickens But the question is what sort.. I want a breed that's nice enough natured to be around my kids (my 16 month old daughter absolutely adores the chooks!- see pic!) and also to get on with the rest of the flock (Orpington, bantams, Rhode Island Red type birds, oh and the Araucana chick when it's a bit bigger). I want it to lay a good amount (an egg most days, I get 5 eggs a week each from most of mine usually, wouldn't want less that that on average) and want big eggs. Any suggestions for what breeds would fit the bill? I have heard of a farm that sells lots of different chicks, am going to pay them a visit tomorrow to see what they have, so a shortlist of breeds would be very useful (or at least a list of breeds to avoid!).
