    so i want to breed chickens, i want to smend no more that $100 for a trio of show quality chickens ( a male and a female).
    they need to be.

    broody. (or i have a 4th chicken that will be broody like an orpington)
    docile, i need to be able to walk into the coop without the roster attacking me(i know that this depends how well i trat them and how much he is handled)
    the roster needs to treat the hens kindly, so they will have feathers on their back for show.
    they need to be able to have an outdoor area.
    they roster needs to not be overly loud
    and they need to be cold and heat hardy.

    and im a beginer i have a variaty of 18 birds for eggs but i want something to breed that wont be to problematic.

    Many of the things you list are related more to individual bird behavior than a particular breed. You might want to see what is available locally, that should narrow your choices down considerably.
