My original flock was 3 EE and a Barred Rock. The EE are kinda flighty, but I love the eggs. The BR is my girl LOL. "The Baroness" is definitely the head hen and is now asserting herself over the new additions, but is not mean to them. I've always planned to have a very mixed flock with a lot of color variety so I have refrained from getting more BR so far, but she is my favorite and is a great all around chicken. You almost can't go wrong with most of the breeds that show up at say Tractor Supply for beginning chickens. If you want to order specifics, then you've gotten a ton of good ideas from everyone so far and I won't muddy that further.
