I am starting a new coop in NE Ohio....
I want Brown Eggs, what type of chickens are hardy in the cold and heat of ohio......and how many can go into my coop i enclosed a picture of the coop that i am getting this weekend
dpappas, i would recommend the Buckeye! it was developed in NE Ohio (Warren County) and is the ONLY breed to be developed by a woman. They were bred to be cold tolerant and withstand the hot humid Ohio summers, too. By the looks of this coop I'd say you could easily keep 5-6 Buckeye hens....they handle confinement very well and lay medium sized brown eggs, even in the winter!!!
