Hello everyone, i am new to backyard chickens and would love some input.I am planning on starting a small coop (2-3) and am unsure which types of chickens to get. I live in Wisconsin so we have very cold winters. i would also like chickens that would let my small children hold and pet them. I have been doing lot of research and have been getting mixed reviews. Please give me your input and any other advice you have for a starting and maintaining a healthy flock. Thanks so much.!!!
