Hi- New to the forum and the wonderful world of raising chicks, but am on the hunt (maybe I shouldn't use that word!!) for about a dozen B.O.'s We live in CT., and I am told that these girls will lay during the cold long winter months, which would help pay for their keep. Any help would be appreciated, along with other suggested breeds that are productive during the winter. We are also looking at Barred Rocks and good ol' RI Reds.
