I'm fairly new to Wisconsin and am wondering what chickens would work in this climate! It's upwards of 90 degrees and sometimes stormy in the summer and downwards of -10 degrees and snowing in the winter. I was thinking that I would need to get standard sized chickens with a smaller comb and no feathers on their feet. I have a long haired dog and I have to trim the hair on her feet in the winter to keep her from sticking to the snow! I've also heard that Polish don't necessarily do well because their top feathers freeze and form little icicles After a preliminary search, breeds that I'm considering are: Ameraucana Andalusian Ancona Australorp Barnevelder Brahma Buckeye Campine Chantecler Cherry Egger Cochin Delaware Dominique Easter Egger Favaucana Faverolles Hamburg Jersey Giant Marans Modern Game Naked Neck Turken New Hampshire Orpington Plymouth Rock Rhode Island Sex Link Sussex Wyandotte Has anyone had experience with these breeds in different climates? Or any chickens to add to the potential chickens list?
