im picking new breeds after a diasterous start to winter............ i want to know what to get for spring and plan and prepare for the new arrivals! i had a short list of the following..... 1. Speckled Sussex 2. Austrolorps 3. Buckeyes (werent on the original list but read about them on here and am liking ALOT) 4. Welsummers im really wanting to know alot about speckled sussex or the sussex breed in general but if you have anything to offer about any of the other breeds on my "list" that would be more than appriciated....... the thing on the top of my list for any breed is that they are very winter hardy so any comment on that and they are good with kids from what i can tell all four are that but looking for a owners perspective and cant find that on a breed profile website! thank you in advance!
