    Hi new to live stock keeping
    live off grid in white mountain area of Arizona St Johns
    looking to keep some Buff Orpingtons and Neubian goats
    one question I have is as I don't have a huge solar array is what kind of temperature do I need to keep chix at
    also is Myer Hatchery to get my starter chix from a reliable dealer
