    I will be getting some chicks in the next few weeks and i need some help on some breeds to get, I am for sure getting some buff orpingtons and black australorps. I want to get at least one breed that lays colored eggs, how are easter eggers personality?
    I need a breed that is friendy, docile and gets along with other birds

    I like my Orpingtons, Speckled Sussex and my EEs......All are very docile and get along well with the flock......


    Best of luck....
