    Hello!
    We just joined the party...we've been lurking for quite some time, and used the site for inspiration and information when we got our chicks last fall.
    We have 10 birds...5 beautiful buff orpingtons and 5 hideously ugly light brahmas.
    This is their first winter outside and we're hoping they handle the cold well...it's been exceptionally cold this year already.
    Any advice is welcome!

    Hello from Oregon & welcome to BYC. They should be fine as long as they can huddle up in a coop at night or when its super cold/windy out. Best of luck [​IMG]
