I am interested in getting a few (2 or 3) chickens and have been looking at many sites. They are allowed in my city, but no roosters within city limits. What would you recommend for me. I would like a friendly type bird, that is cold hardy and would be okay hanging out only in the coop and run occasionally. We plan to let out chickens mostly hang out in our fully fenced backyard. Thanks! Update: Any kinds with feathered feet. I love the way that looks. Or is it more hassle than it is worth?
