Some chickens are great pets and therefore great with kids. While others are better at finding their own food and are great as free range chickens.
I have young kids that help me take care of the brood so I chose Americana chickens. They are a quieter type, that make great pets. They lay a greenish blue egg every other day which is really fun. When they are chicks they look like chipmunks with a brown stripe down their back.
I also have a few Rhode Island Reds. They usually lay 1 brown egg everyday. They are a bit bigger than the Americana’s but they are still great around the kids. When they are chicks they are little yellow and fluffy.
