    I just got my first 6 babies from TSC....they are sex linked but labeled pullets....they are about 3 weeks old, living in my basement, and sprouting lots of red feathers!

    We bought a Tractor Supply coop for them...but are planning on building a coop that is more substantial seeing that we have many predators living in our woods!

    I also have 6 Americana chicks on order...I know, EE but I'll love the colored eggs!

    Looking for other cold weather high predator area chicken keepers...want to keep the girls safe and healthy!!

    This is all new to me! Loving the new adventure!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Congrats on your new chicks :clap You might like to pop by your state thread to chat with other keepers in your area for their thoughts and experience on the cold and predators. State threads can be found here ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your chicks. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow
