Fairly new to raising backyard layers and just getting started again. I had 2 hens (Buffy the Buff Orpington and Barbie the Barred Rock) several years ago but predators got them and I've been reluctant to try again. I am near Fort Worth and want to make sure I pick breeds who will do well in the heat. I also am looking into better coop ideas! Thanks for adding me to the group!
