    Right now I have 2 Buff Orpingtons and 2 Ameraucanas well I want to a couple more chickens 1 more B.O and 1 more Amer. then I want to get 3 more babies that are the same but a different kind of chicken then my other 6. What kind do you recommend? I want them to be easily handeled and prefferably lay large eggs, brown or white. the chickens would be meant for egg laying.

    Do any of you know what would be good for me?

    I love my Australorps.

    But, if you want great egg production, you could do sex links or RIR.

    I have two white leghorns they lay big white eggs. I get at least 12 eggs a week from the two. But they aren't that pretty to look at. For pretty I would try wyanottes any color they are nice looking.

    I've got a black sex-link who is a doll of a bird: friendly, talkative, not too loud, sweet, inquisitive. We love her!

    I have Buff Orps, but I would also like to get some Black Orps and possibly Light Brahma's on down the road.

    Blue laced red wyondottes would look pretty in appearance and they are good layers, nice birds.

    I have Red Stars (sex-link) I think they are very pretty. Mine are Red with white flecks on them. They are supposed to be fantastic brown egg layers, mine are 10 weeks so I can't tell you from experience but everyone I have mentioned them too talks about what good egg layers they are. I love my girls they all love to be held and are very hardy.

    I think at least one of every breed will work out wonderfully for you!!!!
