We're slated to close on our new property in just about a month...so I'm looking to order my chicks for the year. I've decided to use Welp if that makes any difference. My question is - I want a very diverse group of chickens and eggs. So far I've decided on Black sex-link, red sex-link, California White, and EEs. I want some dark eggs. If I understand correctly, getting hatchery stock you never really know what your going to get so I'm ready for some of the eggs not to be super dark, and I'll decide what to do with the non-dark egg layers later.. My question is....what would you pick - temperment wise I want fairly docile, great personality birds (I know, I know, that's up to the individual bird), that lay well, and lay dark eggs and are the better egg layers (quantity wise).
