Where abouts are you in Ontario? I'm near Collingwood. This is our first year/winter with chickens. We have orpingtons, australorps, easter eggers, and one little tiny silkie! Our coop is insulated but not heated. They seem to be doing just fine so far! :)

I'm looking for some new breeds for spring time. I think a lot of chickens are actually pretty winter hardy if given the time to acclimate to the temperature and kept out of the wind and snow. We have a large covered run that we wrapped in plastic to keep the wind and snow out. They spend all day in the run. :)

Hi Lily, we are in NW Ontario, Red Lake. Collingwood, is that near Kitchener/Toronto...?

 

What is the coldest you get to? I am told we get a week of solid -30 to -40ish, and then most of the winter is -10 to -20 with snow on the ground the whole time.

 

I would fear keeping it heated in the place I plan to use for a coop would be costly, I want them to be warm and happy. In Texas by girls layed eggs year around, I fed them scraps (proper scraps, I was picky!) and freshly cooked beans/rice with their normal chicken feed.

We considered Freys when ordering chicks but found that many small breeders advertis on Kijiji. We have been very happy with the chicks we have found, they are healthy, happy and come from backyard and small breeders who really care about their birds.

So kijiji search did it for us and we have found many breeders fairly close.
