    Hi, thought we had an australorp turns out she's a minorca. We thought we had a cold hardy breed, now what should we do? Will she be ok or do we need to make some allowances for her breed. We live in MA temp can be anywhere from mid 30's to low teens during the winter, single digits are rare. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    I have a sebright bantam and I live in WI! It once got 0*F here, so I think your minorca will survive! [​IMG] In my hen house we have a heat lamp, so my sebright can go in whenever. Maybe have some type of heat source? Then you should be good!
