I have been wanting chickens for several years now and was finally able to budget the time to build my coop. I promised my wife that building the coop would cost us $0, and after several weeks of raining construction site trash piles, I've finished my coop for free! I'm looking to buy 5-7 hens of various breeds so that we will have lots of unique eggs. I'm leaning towards Sagitta and Production Red, but wanted to know what the general consensus is for the best egg laying hens for hot places in the Gulf Coast area. Also, I'd really like to know what place in the Houston area would be best for me to buy my hens from. Looking forward to filling my coop! I don't really care about fancy breeds, I just want breeds that will lay good eggs and are healthy and resilient.
