    We started raising chickens last fall. All are beautiful and healthy. They survived one of the worst winters here in decades. Of course that is because they have a good sized, insulated and heated coop. Many others were not so lucky.
    We are looking forward to different breeds and some guineas.
    A bit daring for our first year. But fun!

    I'm glad you babies made it through the winter! Raising chickens is a blast (most of the time), and it's a very rewarding as well. Oh and welcome to BYC!

    :welcome so glad you have joined us.

    I can't imagine tending a flock with your winter weather.

    Good luck with your plans for adding to the flock. If you haven't already done so, do research how to accomplish adding newbies.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! :frow

    Winters sure can be brutal! Most chickens are pretty hardy even in the coldest of weather.

    Make yourself at home here, ask any questions you may have and welcome to our roost! :)
