    hi I'm are looking at getting chickens for a small area and I'm in a suburban area. they can't be to skittish because of the dog. the first few weeks he'll bark at them but in the the next few weeks he'll lick them like with my rabbit(pardon the grammar in this)only wanted 3-5
    I've been looking at

    orprintons
    andalusions
    wyandotte

    but really open to any suggestions
    must be tolerant to children
    thanks Brittany

    I have barred rocks, buffed orpingtons, australorps, silver and golden laced wyandottes and americaunas and they are all pretty tolerant and they may be a little skittish when you first get them but ounce they have been there for a while they will be right at home. Hope this helps

    I have i final decision it is buff orpringtons,
    they are so placid tame and really good egg layers i think.

    but are they really chubby or is it their dense plumage ?

    thank you
