Were getting 4 new chicks and enjoy a variety in our flock. We have light brahmas, easter eggers, black auatrolourps, and golden laced wyandotte... We lost our buff orpington. Could I ask opinions of people's favorite breeds and why out of the list below we're considering? We are looking for somewhat heavier birds so they won't be as proned to flying into our garden lol, great egg layers, attractive appearance and of course fun personality is great but I know that can depend on the chicken itself. We live in Carmel Valley California where winters can get cold but no snow and summers are pretty hot... 75-100 but they are provided with shade. Here's what were looking at: 1) barred or white rocks 2)speckled Sussex 3) Rhode Island Red 4) buff or white orpingtons 5) more brahmas (buff or dark) 6) more wyandottes (silver or white 7) red star 8) New Hampshire red If you could just list your 3 or 4 favorite and maybe why, id so appreciate it!!! Thanks so much in advance!
