well,as the title states,what breed is best for me? I live in a state where we have cold and hot weather so they need to be weather hardy. I live in the country but i have two large dogs so there will be little to no free ranging(this is ok isn't it ? ). Also,weather or not the chicken breed is a good egg layer does not matter. I just want chickens for the company and entertainment. I have been doing my research but im just not sure and thought i could use some information from expirenced chicken owners. thanks very much! This information is very much appreciated.
