Hey ya'll, I'm starting over with hens and realized when I went by habit to the Buff Orpington page online that the reasons I used to like them so much were not only they are quiet and good layers that go broody but also they were easy to pluck and their skin is white. So now that I will not be raising chickens for butchering, I am thinking I can get another breed too. I would like two small flocks of egg layers each with a roo. What breed would you choose that is colorful, fairly peaceful and a decent layer that can hatch her own eggs? These will be for egg production only. Thanks.
