We're very excited to have found this website. We got 5 chickens about 3 months ago, and we just love our little girls. Unfortunatley we lost 2 to a local bobcat over the past few weeks. We've upped our security, and we now have 3 left - 2 plymouth rocks and a rhode island red. We've had a mild winter so far in NH, and the first significant snow fell over the last few days. They don't like the snow, that's for sure. We're a little worried about the cold temps coming in tonight and tomorrow. We're doing our best keeping the girls happy and healthy. All the best from our coop to yours! Looking forward to learning a lot!
