    Hello everyone. Although I do not yet have my chickens, because I am researching and am amidst of setting up my hobby farm garden this year.
    Chickens, I plan to have next spring. So I have much learning to do.
    I look forward to all the information I can get and choosing a cold weather hardy breed.
    Have a great day. :)

    Hi welcome to BYC! There is a learning center on this website along with reviews which people will often share the pros and cons of each breed and what they've experience with each one. You can also looks through threads for answers or ask them yourself.
