Before deciding where to buy your chickens, you need to decide what breeds best suit your needs and environment. Chickens are bred for specific purposes like egg laying and meat, and others are bred for different climates. Some breeds, like Blue Andalusian, are better suited to hot, humid climates while Rhode Island Reds adapt to some of the coldest.
