If you live in an area where you experience temperatures of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit / 38 degrees Celsius, it is a good idea to avoid the large-sized and feathery chickens.
In hot weather, most Bantams do well with the exception of the feather-footed varieties.
The following Standard breeds are highly recommended for hot climates:
Common Hot Weather Breed Chickens
- Blue Andalusians
