Hi All, I'm living in Charlotte, NC. My wife and I are seriously considering keeping chickens and are hoping some people in the area may have some tips on breeds that do well in the Charlotte weather and anything else that might be relevant to the area. We have 2 kids and we've been moving in the direction of local agriculture and food for some time now, and it doesn't get much more local than your backyard. We're hoping to have 4 egg-laying chickens to start, possibly by hatching them ourselves, but at least getting chicks so we can raise them ourselves. Thanks in advance, Dan PS - The Learning Center here is awesome. I watched no less than 5 chicken song videos on Youtube after learning that chickens will sing before and/or after laying.
