Hello Everyone! I am new here, and I am wanting to get some chickens but I am officially clueless about them, so I am sorry in advance if I ask any dumb questions.... I just want to make the best decision before I go buy any chickens... I currently live in the Hill Country, Texas, so it is pretty hot here and can get humid. Are there certain kinds that do better here than others? They will have plenty of shade. As far as what I'm looking for, I just want them to have eggs, I am not looking to buy any for meat. How many would I need to have around a dozen eggs a week? Also, is it better to get them as chicks, or adults? Do they lay eggs only in the spring/summer, or all year long? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! If you can think of any other tips or anything, please let me know, I am really excited about getting chickens!
