    I have chickens and ducks and turkeys and one baby goose. And I'm new at this and I have a lot of questions. And I don't know how to ask him.

    Hi, @nanabirds :welcome Chickens do well in cold weather, but not so much in hot. Are you asking how to winterize a coop? If yes, straw is perfect for bedding in the winter. It will insulate the coop and keep your chickens warm. We will also be glad to answer any questions you have.

    Hey Alice, sorry for the cryptic replies above... I was making a demo video of BYC :)

    Hopefully this video will help you (and others) navigate the site a bit easier!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Just ask whatever you want to know. If we don't have an answer we will refer to someone who does.
