I'm considering getting a couple chickens. We have a home in chandler (sub. of phoenix). We have a large (for a city) backyard. I'm looking for enough for 4-6 people. Any extra I'd give away or feed to the dogs. Which brings us to hard part. We have 4 dogs. 2 labs, a boxer and a shiba inu mix. Can anyone make suggestions on a breed that would survive in phoenix summer heat without expensive cooling equipment and that will actually lay eggs with 4 dogs running around and probably barking at them. I'd guess the dogs will ignore them once they get used to them but I won't make any promises!
