Hi all. My wife, kids and I just got our first house and its in the country. We would like to get a few chickens and goats to start out and then take it from there. I have been around farms and animals all my life but never had one so I could use some help. I am in Canada so I am looking for a good egg laying breed that will winter well. Also hearty against disease... so in other words a chicken perfect for a beginner. We would be looking at a half dozen to start with. Any info you think I could use would be great!
