We've got the free window to start the build, and a general idea of how we want our coop to look, even where it is going, but can't make up our minds as to what breed the ladies should be. Every time I come on here, I see things I like about different breeds, but I THINK I've got it narrowed down to three...Buckeye, Welsummer or Marans. I want a hen, not white, that will lay brown eggs (darker is better). We live in a northerly area (Canuck-land) where -40 isn't unusual in the winter. We'll only have 4, but I can't make up my mind what kind. I had asked before and got great advice, but I'm still hesitant... DH wants a heritage, breed and I'd like one of the endangered or rarer breeds. Help!
