I'm freezing my hind side off in Billings, MT. Unfortunately, that means my birds are too. Thought this would be a great place to come for new and different ideas. I'm not yet a chicken owner, I do however have a couple of pigeons that have taken over a portion of my yard. I do believe once I have the kinks worked out with them, chickens will be a natural step in my animal extravaganza. Happy owner of 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 pigeons, 1 hedgehog and one mean arss beta fish.
