I can only hope that I am posting this in the right forum... I live in the Northeast Corner of CT. I have recently decided to purchase some Cochins for my daughter and I. When I was growing up I had one who was simply the most AMAZING BIRD EVER, and now I want my daughter to have the same experience of a loving feathered friend. Cochins come recomended by many people when I posted on here earlier this month asking what breed to would be best with a small child. However, on many breed sites and on several breed charts Cochins are listed as having a climate tolerance of cold. My question is just what does that mean? Becasue winters can be 10 below 0, but summers might be up into the 90s. I don't want to get a bird that is going to suffer durring any time of year... Advice please???
