My friend and I are starting out with our chicks as soon as the coop is done. I have been successful in the past with Buff Orpingtons and Rhode Island Red hens. We are curious as to any other breeds that can take the heat in Louisiana.

I found with the heat the larger standard breeds work best they seem to be able to handle it ok, both in the winter and summer.

Hi! Glad to see another Louisiana person! What part are you in? I'm in the New Orleans area.

My Barred Rock, Buff Orpingtons and Brown Leghorn are doing well with the climate. Hoping to add some different breeds soon!
