    Funny, my CLs hate the cold- my Black Copper Marans are outside all day every day and we've been hovering around freezing for the last few days. The CL's will hop out for some corn but as soon as it's gone they are back in the coop! Isbar hens stay inside, too, but the rooster likes to be out. The Croad Langshans mostly stay out, too. Ameraucanas stay mostly in.

    All my chickens hate, hate, hate the snow. The ISA Brown and RIRs are more comfortable with cold and snow than the others, but not by much. The only ones who look actively cold are the two tiny d'Uccles. They stay in the coop nearly all the time. The CLs? Middle of the pack.

    Yes...I was on a Marans form earlier today and someone asked if Marans were supposed to lay in the winter. Everyone seemed to have an excuse for why their flock didn't lay in the winter, but my observations have been that of my half dozen breeds that the Marans lay best in the winter hands down, but lay the worst during the summer (it can't be comfortable for a big black bird in 103 Deg. F). My CLB are more productive in the summer and less productive in the winter. It is a nice trade out to have one breed that lays through the summer heat and one that lays through the cold weather. It keeps the egg supply moving through out the year.

    No one is laying at my house right now after moving them from the old place- except one Marans pullet! An egg nearly every day which is rare for a marans! Nice color to it, too!
