    Hello everyone. Planning on raising 6 chickens for laying this summer. Have to say I'm definitely a newb when it comes to chicken. Very excited though. I've found a lot of good info already the only thing I would like is any info from fellow Akers on wintering birds up here where it can get -30 in the dead of winter. I know it can be done since we've been buying eggs throughout the winter from locals. Any websites or tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
