I'm in need of help on picking a breed for my ladies. I don't really know what kind of information I would need to provide to help get a suggestion. So I'll just list what I think would help and if I leave something off let me know. I'm located in central Oklahoma so weather is as unpredictable as can be. It was hanging around 0 degrees a few days ago now it's 65. Summers get 100+ almost guaranteed with 100% humidity. Winters are usually mild by most American standards but we did get a mean cold spell this winter. Lots of rain is possible and of course our famous tornadoes. I'm looking for eggs as a goal of this adventure. I'd be happy with 4-6 a day, but I wouldn't cry if I only got 1 or two. I'm not looking for meat birds at the moment or eggs to hatch. So no roos. Space isn't really an issue but location is a concern. I plan on building a coop with an attached run as free-ranging isn't an option. I have a nice space picked out on the south side of the house which is close to a water hose faucet which seems to be a good location to my uninformed mind. The only issue to this location is it is close to a tree? I don't even know if that is an issue but I have found a snake laying under this tree once in the 6 years I've lived here. It is also close to a field with horses and the occasional stray cat and the neighbors dog. So protection will be an issue but should be manageable. Is an electric fence safe for the hens or should I put it outside of the run? That's all I got for now. Thanks.
