Hello everyone!! I (we) am new to everything about chickens. My family consists of myself, my husband, and 4 children (8, 7, 5, and 1 1/2). We are trying to find out as much as we can about raising chickens. We live in central Louisiana. We are looking to raise dual purpose chickens and are still trying to find out the best breed for us. Any suggestions? We are looking for a breed that is dual purpose, gentle, friendly, any obviously good traits to have around children, and one that can stand the Louisiana summers.
