Right now we have a bit of a mixed bag of chickens but we are about to move onto some land and will be able to have more than six (WOOOOHOOOOO) so the search is now on for the perfect breed. Things we want' Good for meat and eggs. Will brood and raise own chicks. Thrifty and good free rangers. Tolerates heat well. After all, we are down in Florida. Strong protective roosters that are calm and good around people. And last but not least, good camo so hawks have a hard time seeing them. Its quite a list but with thousands of kinds of chickens, surely there are one or two that meet all of the above lol.
