Lots of good easy starter choice that handle cold and warm climates well and are super friendly. Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, Ameraucana, Australorp, White Leghorn, Easter Eggers, to name a few good breeds.

Ok, you can plan on getting 6, but chicken math works like this.

These 6 + these 2 that we saw that were just toooo cute to pass up, and then 2 of those others were roosters, so 4 of those eggs hatched and they are so cute that we had to keep those, and OMG where did THOSE chicks come from, and have you seen a Polish chicken, we've got to get a couple of those...

so before you know it, your little hobby has turned into a feathered crack addiction, and instead of Schmidtfarm, you are up schmidtcreek!! We've all been there!! :D
