I am looking for chickens that can satisfy some of the following: 1. Must be friendly to children! 2. Good egg layers, prefer excellent 3. Prefer a broody hen but not required 4. I'd like for them to breed true (color not important, just breed). I love my black sexlink but their offspring.....do they lay eggs just like their mommas? 5. Decent meat birds (if I could ever bring myself to do it) 6. Hatching eggs sell pretty well 7. Winter hardy These are not listed in order of importance . If you want, for example, you can list like this: black sex link - 1, 2, 7 Or you can be very descriptive which is great for me .
