    Hi folks! New to the community and this will be our first year raising chickens as well. For our layers, we have an order in for White Chanteclers, due to their cold-hardiness and a homage for our truly Canadian-bred bird :)

    We will also be raising some meat birds--leaning towards a slow-growth broiler (Sasso), but still considering the Cornish-X.

    Looking forward to learning from you all!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I think you would enjoy posting at "Canadians, check-in-there." Among others we have a lovely Canadian lady who raises chanticleers, as well as duck, geese, chickens, swans and I think a Llama or two. She has her own BYCthread called Jest another day in Pear-A-Dice." Her chants are bred to have very small combs(to prevent frostbite) and are hardy and good layers.
