Hi, I am looking for suggestions for breeds/crosses of chickens that would be suitable for me. I live in a fairly cold climate (winters can get as cold as -40) so I would like something that is fairly hardy. I am just starting my research but it looks like breeds with a peacomb would work better for me? I am interested in layers/multi-purpose birds who are generally friendly and easy-keepers for a beginner like me. I am just starting my research on all things chicken, so any help or experiences with birds who would fit the bill would be greatly appreciated.
