What would be the best breed for a newbie? I have never owned chickens before but am looking foreward to getting some hens next year for eggs and pets only, I dont plan on eating them. I live in Northwest Ohio so I need a cold hardy breed and one that is pretty docile. Also what books do you reccomend reading before I get any chicks? I am sure I will have many questions before get my chicks so please be patient with me I have already seen a lot of people got their chicks from Myers, I will have to check them out I live a little over an hour away from them.
