    I am in Florida and want to start a coupe of chickens for eggs. Can anyone recommend an online source to purchase, and a breed that would do well here in Tampa area, florida?
    Thanks.

    The type of bird would depend on what you are wanting them for...

    Meat?
    Eggs?
    Both?
    Pet?

    I have just made my first order from http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com but I can't speak for the quality of their birds yet because I haven't received my first order yet.

    Okay... I'm an idiot. LOL

    You said eggs...

    From what I understand if one is interested in eggs only... the Pearl-White Leghorn is the chicken of choice.
