    Does anyone out there have experience with raising Campines in New England? I've gotten mixed feelings from my research about how they'd do in the winter here....

    they should do fine as long as you keep them on a insulated coop
    I know someone who has them and they do fine [​IMG]
    ETA: where in NE are you?

    Connecticut. Not quite Maine, but it does get pretty cold here.

    well I'm in MASS and I've never had any big problems with the cold other than water freezing and I had a silver spangled hamburg roo almost freeze but he was alone and and in a very badly insulated coop
    so if you have a good coop that's wind and rain/snow proof coop and insulated you should be OK
