Hi! I am new to this community and to raising backyard chickens. I am in upstate NY in the Albany capital district/ southeastern Adirondacks. We currently have two Red Star (hybrid) hens for egg laying purposes and as pets. Our coop is large enough to add one or two more hens. I would love any breed that is hardy enough for cold upstate NY winters, who are friendly and enjoy human interaction, and who have a decent egg output (does not have to be the most prolific). I would like to branch out from the breed we already have. I am looking for juvenile hens just entering the egg laying stage. I am not equipped to raise baby chicks. Anywhere within a 70 mile radius of Amsterdam, NY would be great as far as convenience (including western Mass and southwest VT). We prefer to pick the chickens up. Thank you in advance!!
