    Didn't you just post this question with a different title? You have to give us a little time! [​IMG] Here's the thing, you'll get almost as many different answers to this question as their are BYC members. Personally, I'm in CT (worst flippin' winter ever this year) and I have Barred Rocks, Welsummers, Buff Orpingtons, Easter Eggers, White Leghorns, Red sex links, and they've all been just fine this winter without heat. I'm adding Marans, Ameraucanas, and Sussex this year. Do your homework, read about the proper coop requirements, ie., size, ventilation, etc. before you get your birds. If your coop is set up properly, most birds will do fine through the winter. Here's a link with the info. you're looking for.
