New Hampshire Red Chickens

Competitive and Aggressive
New Hampshire Red
An article I read in a popular magazine, Chickens, I decided New Hampshire Reds were my chicken of choice.  Good laying hens, could endure cold weather, healthy for the most part . . . sounded just right.

But now that I'm down to the wire on buying my hens I did more research on New Hampshire Reds online and changed my mind.  According to Wikipedia, these chickens are only modest layers and as to their meat, best as broilers.

The magazine article states "New Hampshire Reds" were prolific layers and never mentioned the meat aspect at all.  I don't want any chickens who will be aggressive to the other chickens so after further research, if these beauties are aggressive, I guess I will pass them over.
