A friend just gave me a coop and my wife and i want to get chickens. Our daughters are 2 yrs old and a 2 months old. We want friendly chickens which the family can be around and produce alot of eggs. We would like to get 12 chicks .A friend suggested Rhode Island reds. Should we get a rooster as we do not want to reproduce for chicks. I heard roosters can be nasty and I DO NOT WANT A NASTY ROOSTER.Any suggestions?
