Hi I'm brand new to BYC and to chicken raising too! We have a great little setup but no chickens yet... I haven't decide what breed(s) chickens we should go with. I have 2 young children and would like them to be a part of raising the chickens....so I am looking for a breed that is known for good temperment and a good amount of eggs too! So far I have heard Rhode Island Reds for laying and Orpingtons for temperment.... What would happen if I got a few of each? Your input is appreciated!!!
