    Thank you. 2 Leghorn, 2 [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]Dominique, 1 [/COLOR] Wyandotte, and I'm not sure about the last one. The wife picked them out. So far they're doing well. Handling during the day to socialize. Keeping them at 90-95 F.

    BTW.. is straw OK for bedding? I see pine mentioned and some using wood pellets.. keep a few bales on hand for the goats.

    G’Day from down under JesusHChicken [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I use straw myself without issue. I figured it would be better for the cold climate. BUT of course, as soon as I got the babies, it went from the 20s or below at night to the 50s. lol
