Ok Chickenheads, I've decided to have chickens instead of ducks....mostly because they are less messy and they will cost less in the long run. What are your opinions about friendly chicken breeds (hens only, can't have roos in the city)? I've read Orpingtons are good. I'd like to try a couple of breeds; not small breeds though....I'm wanting 'normal-sized' eggs. Thank you!
