    I looked everywhere and I could not find a place to post this sorry if it is in the wrong place. BUT anyway I want a chicken that has a large to x-large egg and are good for cold and heat. I would like color eggs but I don't think they do anything besides brown lol. I just like the feathers on the Wyandotte :) I am in Va if that matters at all.

    [​IMG] Well sounds like a wyandotte is a great bird for you... i would also recommend Rhode island reds, though they are not as pretty, they do have a better egg production and are rather cold hardy...

    Are you talking about Tetra Tints? That is a trade name for sexlinks.

    With a 3x5 I guess you're looking at 3 hens total? Honestly, my wyandottes lay a medium egg. I've had production reds from Tractor Supply. Very friendly and laid a huge egg for their size.
