I just acquired a small batch of Svart Hona chicks (straight run), does anyone have any experience with this breed that tell me some do's and dont's. And are they heat tolerant being as though there all black?

I think they should be heat tolerant since there are some breeders in Florida. Common sense also suggests that all chickens do need shade to avoid being overheated by direct sun.
Now tell us more about your chicks. Do you already have other chickens? How many did you get, and from where? Approximate cost $.? You do not need to disclose the source, just approximate location or town. I am looking to get just one pullet, or older hen, ( cant keep roos. ) and here is my dilemma. Cant seem to find any near me. Trying to avoid high shipping costs for adult birds. Purchase price is way high.
WISHING YOU BEST.
