I received my first chickens (RIR and Phoenix) in April. What a learning curve it has been. Many thanks to all of you who I turned to when looking for answers to my many questions as all of this is very new to me. Now that I have my feet on the ground I thought I should contribute the little experience I have to the group. Currently it's -15 C and I'm working through our first canadian winter with my chickens. All is well.
