    Are there any breeds better for hot summers than others when eggs are the goal ?
    Have plenty of tree shade

    The Mediterranean breeds are heat tolerant as well as the Naked Necks (Turkin). If you have plenty of shade you can pretty much get just about most breeds. I have Black Australorps, Welsummers, and Barred Rock.

    Go to the Where am I, where are you section of the forum and find the Texas thread. Lots of people from the Dallas/Fort Worth area there.
