Okay. This is my first post and I have a few things I'm dealing with. I'm going to post them all here. PS. This is my first year with chickens and I'm loving it. They're easy to maintain and a blast to watch. 1. I have 6 chicks (Plymouth Rock) that I've been letting free range. They free range about 4 - 5 properties down from my house (no one seems to mind too much and I give them free eggs anyway). I'm thinking about giving 3 of the chickens to a neighbor (2 doors down). He wants them. The only issue is that the chickens know where they live and I assume that they would travel back to their home coop at night. I'm thinking that one way to get them to learn their new home is have them fenced in at their new home for a while. Any other thoughts? 2. What about cold weather. My chickens live near Buffalo, NY and the winters get pretty cold. We've had single digits a few nights here and I've been concerned that it's been too cold. I have a 40 watt bulb in the coop and have used it on days when the weather was cold and windy. I haven't had it on at night so that I don't disturb their sleep. What does everyone suggest? 3. Coop cleaning. I started out cleaning every two weeks then I heard that was too much. What do y'all suggest for the winter. The coop is small 4' X 6' and I use straw and pine chips for bedding. There's a lot of poop in there, but I skim off the droppings and replenish some of the chips every two weeks. Do I need to do a full cleaning during the winter, or can I wait till early March? That's about it for now. I will be replenishing the 3 chicks with 3 Barred Plymouth Rocks. The ones I have now are white. They're great chickens and lay well during the winter. We're averaging 4 - 6 eggs per day. I was totally surprised. All for now.
