The thread has gone a bit quiet in the last year or so but used to be really active. Maybe you can revive it!
I know we can't post FB links, but find the "BYC (BackYardChickens)" page, it's very active. There is also a forum set up just like this one by the same name (backyardchickens.com). I knew nothing about keeping chickens when my neighbor moved his coop and 4 hens from his yard to mine in the middle of a January snowstorm back in 2012 or 2013 (his wife threatened divorce if the chickens didn't move)- that website saved me as I had no chicken "mentors" and had to learn a lot of chicken first aid/basic vetting myself.
Good, cold hardy and semi-heat tolerant breeds include a couple of my favorite breeds: Wyandottes, which come in a bunch of fun colors, and Dominiques, who I have found to be particularly personable. Here's some more info, though I don't think your winter is quite as cold as ours here: https://www.fresheggsdaily.com/2014/...en-breeds.html
. Basically, the type of comb they have makes a big difference in how hard the winter cold is on them- you generally want a "rose" comb to minimize frostbite. I have 4 speckled sussex (they're pictured below) and they have lost most of their comb tips to frostbite over the years, though it doesn't really seem to bother them.
Oh, just remembered,
is somewhat close to you, right? She's got a big flock and probably good advice for you based on location.
Mine are solidly pets, I am way too attached to them and they have a home here forever even when they get old and lay less. Others take a much more practical, livestock type approach. There's really a spectrum of crazy chicken ladies out there. Hope you'll love having them, I find them endlessly entertaining little creatures.
