    Hello,

    My wife and I are interested in purchasing our first chickens, a small flock of laying hens. Can anyone recommend a reputable breeder in the Orlando, FL area? We want to keep chickens for fresh eggs so we would be mainly interested in buying some young hens that are already laying. We have not decided on a specific breed; one that is either a good layer or all purpose bird. If anyone would like to recommend a breed that does well in the Central Florida heat we would appreciate it. Thank you!

    Easter Eggers are good egg layers in any season weather hot or cold since they are winter hardy birds
