    I might get another chicken, but I don't know what to get. Here are some traits of a good chicken that would suit my needs:

    Lays large eggs

    Lays plenty of eggs

    Friendly

    Maybe a frizzle...

    Note: NOT A RIR, BO, OR BR, BECAUSE WE ALREADY HAVE THAT! THANK YOU!!

    Not the frizzle part but I love Australorps. They are excellent layers and thru winter and summer. Large eggs in large amounts and my girls love attention
    I dont know much on frizzles but the ones I have seen are all the breeds that are not the best producers like cochin. Egg production wise I also love my welsummers, goodness do they live to lay. And very pretty eggs at that. I get what my dd calls dino eggs they are light tan with chocolate spots.

    Easter Eggers lay a medium/large egg 5-6 days a week. Very friendly and chatty(but quiet chatty). You may get blue/green/brown/pink colored eggs, you don't know until they lay.
