We are just about done building our coop, then we will finally be ready to all the chickens. I have done a lot of reading and can't decide which breed best suits us. We live in NW Ohio so we need a breed that is cold weather tolerant, though their coop is going to be inside our pole barn. We would like a breed that will lay eggs through the winter. We would like a dual purpose, for both eggs and meat. We would also like them to sit their own eggs in the spring to add to the flock. We have an 8 yr old niece that is here all the time, so we want a breed that will be good with her being in the coop with them and handling them. Thanks for any and all info you share.
