I live in Colton, Oregon and new to raising chickens. We had fryers when I was a kid and I have "sat" chickens for friends before. I am expecting my chicks around the 19th of February. I have 2 Barred Rocks, 2 Australorp and 2 Austra White coming! I plan to brood my chicks in the garage with a cardboard pen and heat lamp to start out. I have a rabbit hutch and large dog run that I am converting to house my girls when they are large enough to move outside. Any thoughts or suggestions?
