chickens lay the most eggs the 1st year after they turn 6months old
you might get 200 eggs or maybe more from that age group
after that, fried chicken is damned good…lol
barred rocks, white rocks, rhode island reds are the best multipurpose breeds
if you want more meat try jersey giants
if you want more eggs try leghorns
buff orpingtons are a multi breed too but ive never liked them
bantams are a great layer/brooder but very tiny and their eggs are small
araconas lay pretty colored eggs and arent bad for meat
i usually run a couple from each breed and let them cross breed
you get more versatility that way and if you watch a much better chicken in the end
