Hi, all. I'm pretty much finished with my new coop (I'll post photos when I'm done) and am reading everything I can get my hands on about chickens, in preparation for getting my first small flock next spring. I know I want bantams, but I'm going to raise the flock with my grandsons and want friendly and calm birds. I live in Maine so they will need to be hardy. I desperately need your suggestions! Thanks in advance.
