chicken breeds I have kept
lohmann brown
Hybrid egg-laying breed of chicken with a friendly temperament and high egg yield.  Starts laying at around eighteen weeks and produces up to 300 eggs a year.    They are a cross between New Hampshires and some other brown egg laying breeds (company secret).
They are almost identical in looks and temperament to the Hy-Line Brown chicken.
