I always thought if I moved to AZ I would get Egyptian Fayoumis.
I live midway between prescott and phoenix (climate and distance-wise). If I had to live in Phx, or even in black canyon city again, I'd get egyptian fayoumis or possibly penedesenca. Maybe andalusians (which I have now) if I had a lot of natural shade.
ETA: or if I got turkens again I'd get some local, Phoenix-adapted ones--the hatchery NNs I had weren't the best in the heat up here.

welcome @Evakin (Anthony)! I also live in AZ. I have four andalusians, and 7 midnight majesty marans pullets (plus two cockerels).
here's our state's thread:

Also, (honest I don't get any endorsement fee), I like @igorsMistress 's desert oasis, I believe it's been updated also. Think open and airy, with electricity (fan) and water (mister) hookups nearby.
Best of luck!

Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow

Make yourself at home here and ask as many questions as needed. Good luck with the heat, definitely take advantage of evaporative cooling, wet the floor down and put a turbo fan on it. It will cool the floor and air 10+ degrees. Cool feet are cooler birds. Welcome to our community!
