Happy New Year !!! My name is Debra and live in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. I just adopted 5 Rhode Island Red hens from a church member who's husband died from an Aneurysm recently. She will be moving away and I offered to take them. I moved their coop, feed and hens on January 1st. I have always wanted chickens but I now need a crash coarse in raising chickens. These girls are almost one year old I think. My main concern is what temperatures can they tolerate. I have read that their combs will get frost bite and not to let them outside below 32 degrees or when there is a windchill below 32. I just joined this site today. I will read everything I can to learn. Any advice for a Newby will be appreciated.
