    I need to do some research on chicken breeds and am failing so I want to know your opinions.
    What are the best chickens for egg laying? I live in a rural area near a small town and plan on selling the eggs to neighbors and friends.
    They need to be able to live in the cooler Canadian temp. and ones I can breed if needed.
    Whats the best kind for me?
    Where can I get good feed?
    Where can I get chickens from?(that has been bugging me most).
    I probably sound stupid and demanding [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    ah well.
