    Welcome! [​IMG]
    If you are looking for good layers - Leghorns are the best I'm told. Delawares, RIRs', Welsummers are also good reliable layers. Have you looked at Hendersons chicken chart for a general idea of breed/temperament/egg laying??
    As for breeders, I don't know about local breeders, but Mypetchicken.com, Meyers, McMurray, Strombergs to name a few of the internet options. I have always ordered from MPC and have had good results.
    I'm sure other folks will give you some good advice also, enjoy! Sue

    Thanks for the info I'm sure I will have tons of questions once the weather breaks and I can get the coop set up
