Warrens would be my choice for a first time hen keeper nice docile bird very friendly & lay like maniacs. At the mo I've got rhode island red x light sussex nice bird bigger than a warren so they eat a bit more, found these to be a little noisy compared to the warrens and they are still not over friendly good thing I suppose as we intend to eat them eventually.
