    Hey, new to BYC, and wanted to hear some opinions about RIR, Black Sex Links, and Gold Sex Links. That's what I'm starting my flock with from Old Time Farm Supply. Just finished my wife's Christmas present chicken tractor out, and going to fill it up now. We live in Gonzales, LA, so it's not too cold out, but still late winter. I was going to keep all the doors closed on the hen house of my tractor with a heat lamp on for my chicks, do you think I need to keep them in my storage room instead?

    I would keep them inside for a few weeks. And, in my opinion, the sex links will do better for you. Good luck and have fun!
