    My boyfriend and I decided to raise chickens for the first time. We seen our local family farm and home had them in already. We live in Michigan so it's still pretty cold here. I might have though that we got them to early but the store is already close to selling out for this batch. We decide to get 4 to start 2 RIR rhode island red then 2 plymouth rocks. Im thinking the RIR is about 2 weeks the PR are little and the runts of the litter. We currently have them sat up inside the house seeing how cold it is. We also have a Ecoglow20 and so far we are loving it... so nice to meet you all!!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I think you would also enjoy the Michigan state thread. Just put the name in the search box. Michigan folks are very kind and helpful. Possibly some live near you.
