Hi, I'm a highschooler in Central Iowa. I have always loved taking care of animals, and would like to raise chickens! Since I live in Iowa, winters are very cold and summers are quite hot. So I need a breed that can stand both. I would also like just some basic hardy chickens since this is my first time. I do not need to show them or breed them, I would just like to learn how to take care of them and get a few eggs a week. I would like to buy them as eggs so I can learn how to incubate them and get the whole experience(is that a good idea?). If you have any recommendations, I would really appreciate it!
