I have raised chickens off and on for 20 plus years so I am not a newbie here. My neices want chickens and my sister said I can get some for them. I always have have production and heritage breeds but I think my neices would like something more "fun". I was thinking about some pretty banties maybe feather footed, EEs and my sister wants some nice brown egg layers to go with them. The girls are 12, 9 and 5 and they have a house on 5 acres. My sister is having the hen house professionally built so I just need to tell her how big to make it. We were thinking 25 total chickens. What breeds would be a good mix? I want something that will be moderate to good productive wise and pretty. I need to have them shipped from the hatchery since they are halfway across the country. They live in Eastern Washington, a little north of Spokane. Where is a good place to get them and can I have banties shipped with big hens?
