After asking lots of questions about breeds, I have narrowed it down to Turkens, Wyandottes, and Orpingtons. Which one do you think is nicest, lays well, and is docile?

We've had the best experience with Orpingtons (our wyandotte was neurotic and mean and crazy). Never had Turkens and never want to... ew.
Orps are calm, friendly, and good layers!

Yeah, I read that Wyandottes cn be aggressive. And the Turken part... Well, I used to think that too but now I sorta think they're cute.

My wyandottes that I've hatched are very docile and friendly. I think sometimes you can get some that aren't so nice from the hatcheries from what I hear. My orps are also nice birds.
