Greetings all, I'm Jeff. I've been growing feed store bought chickens and a pair of ducks for a couple of years, now I'm looking to expand the flock. My sister, known here as Pavla, suggested I join here and browse the topics to get some ideas of what to try next. So far I've found this forum very educational and helpful. For those that need more location information to suggest some breeds, I have 16 acres a few miles north of Pittsburgh that is slowly being turned into a homestead. It's windy here, but the land is mostly wooded. The temperatures range from high 70s in the summer to low 20s in winter. I'm looking for friendly breeds, good egg layers are a plus. I'm also interested in quail.
