I liked having chickens but next time I'm going to pick a different breed. These were handed off to me so there weren't many options.

I've been told that because they have close-fitting feathers they don't do well with cold, drafty weather but can still handle being in your back yard.
Their eggs are small, light brown and they lay about once a week.
They are loud and active and broody.
They don't seem to mind being confined to a general space.
They are usually used for meat but I couldn't do it. They are pretty heavy at about 8lbs so good luck with that.
