    I had a lovely pair of Rhode Island Red hens around eight years ago that I raised in my back yard in the city.

    Now I live on a small ranch in the middle of no where/small town Texas and I have a small room in my barn that would make for the perfect hen house for at least ten chickens and I want to start raising them again. I'm thinking of getting some Red Stars and Ameracanas (sp?) to start off with but we'll see what will happen ;)

    I keep my hens in my barn during the winter. It is great, I do not have to worry about my coop blowing away with every storm.

    [​IMG] Both breeds are excellent choices for eggs and the Ameraucanas should add color to your egg basket.
