    Orpingtons, Marans, and Ameracaunas are nice and popular.
    If you are buying from a Hatchery they only carry the EEs which are crosses that carry the blue/green egg genes and can lay anycolor of egg.
    Red or Black sexlinks are good layers so are RIRs, Rocks, Leghorns...... yeah there are quite a few good ones.

    Favorelles, Dominiques, Brahma, Delewares, and Houdans are all pretty friendly. The brahmas are very large though abd would cost more to feed. [​IMG]

    The chances are very good that your feed store will be able to get the Dominiqes for if they get thier chicks from a very large hatchery. Good luck! [​IMG]
