Hi, I am very interested in getting a mixed flock of around 4 chickens (due to low amount of space). I would like high egg production (280+ per year), and they have to be fine in confinement. Low maintenance is essential (hardy birds are needed due to living in the cold south cost of the U.K), and it is not necessary for them to be 'meat birds', as I will not be slaughtering them. I have already looked on many apps and websites, and I really just want to know answers from personal experience. Any places selling POL chickens around Dorset (around Poole would be perfect) would be appreciated.
