New to the chicken world

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello my husband and I are new to the world of raising chickens. We are building a chicken tractor and want to have about 4 or 5 hens. We live in TN so I am needing to know what are some of the best breads for egg production for my area. I know some are better suited for cooler weather and it can get pretty warm here in TN.

There's a good article in the Learning Center that can help you narrow down the breeds to those that would work best for you:

You could also ask members in your state for tips. Just type the name of your state in the Search box, and your state thread should pop up.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
