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.

Thanks for the advice-maybe 3 or 4 of each. We enjoy the colored eggs, but they don't seem to be a hit on the market. Will mention to the hubby-if I smile sweetly he may let me get a couple more ladies.

Don't know if anyone is still interested in chicks. I found some at the Plainfield Agway - Eastern Ct. exit 87 off Rt 395. Min order 6 chicks they had RI REds, Red Sex-links, barred rocks, white rocks and ducklings .... GOING FAST!!
