All right, so i am hoping for some guidance from everyone, im originally from the northwest and i loved my grandmother's rhode island reds but living down here in georgia, im going to have to rethink the breed. I have small children so the the breed must be calm and hardy. (And able to handle the heat). I want no more than 5 hens just enough to provide eggs for my family. I not sure if i want a mixed flock or not yet. If you need questions anaswered in order to provide better advise (or just curious) fell free to ask!!!
