    Hello All,
    Well, I had to put off getting chicks this year. Had some family issues that took precedence over everything else. So since I have some time now, I thought I would ask for everyone's opinions as to what is the best breed to get that doesn't mind the heat of the Riverside, CA area. I don't want to get something that will be completely miserable. I have seen to many husky dogs out in this area and they are just miserable in the summer. I will provide them with a shaded run about 12' x 18', but it is still hot at times. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hard to go wrong with Leghorns in warm weather. If you crave a color variety - toss in a brown leghorn and exchequer.
