We have been looking for chickens that lay out-of-the-ordinary-colored eggs. We already have a bunch of Americanas, and we're getting some Copper Marans in a few weeks. We just found out about Dorkings, too. Since we keep our chickens mostly for egg production, but they are also sort of our pets,we have been wondering if we should get some. Are they friendly? We don't want any really vicious chickens. Do you have any other suggestions for breeds that lay strange looking eggs, but are still sweet pets? We want consistent layers too.
