My family and I have recently moved to an acreage in the central Cariboo of British Columbia Canada (100 Mile House area). There is quite a large chicken coop here on the property (30'X20') and we have decided to get some laying hens. Is there a particular breed that would be better suited for the cold climate we have here? It's very hot in the summer (28-32 degrees) and Very cold in the winter down to -40 but average of -15). Also, should we wait until spring to do get the hens? Is it better to get them as chicks or adults? We are new to chickens so any help would be appreciated - Thanks!
