Good morning everyone! I'm writing to you from Brantford, Ontario. I'm new to chicken raising, so all advice is welcome. I'm excited about raising chickens in my backyard this spring. At the moment it's -14 and we got 5cm of snow overnight. I won't have to worry about this winter as I won't get my girls till April/May. I plan on getting 2 Rhode Island reds and 2 Plymouths. Any advice on these breeds would be greatly received. I already have a breeder box for when the little girls come home, it measures 2ft x3ft x2ft ht. I want to insulate the outside...any suggestions? I will be getting a heating lamp...based on the height of the box how high would the lamp have to be in order to keep them warm...also what how many watts would be good, considering there will only be 4 girls. Phew...lots of questions. Lastly, the wood box will be keep in the garage until it is warmer and their coop is finished. I look forward to as much information as can be sent....hope you all have a wonderful day!
