    Hello fellow new chicken upstate new yorkers here. We are located about a half hour west of syracuse. We picked 6 rhode island reds and a coop. We were hoping to get other breeds but tsc hoodwinked us.lol. so we are learn as we go.so our biggest concern so far is the winters. So any advice sharing would be awesome

    I ordered from hoovers in Iowa free shipping and min 15 order but had the three breeds we were looking for. We live up near fort drum. I'm originally from just north of Syracuse... Clay... So know the 81 corridor pretty well

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

    redsoxs has given you some good starting points, so I will just wish you and your little ones all the best.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Good for you on preparing for the new arrivals! Don't be surprised if your sister doesn't become attached to the chicks too...it's practically impossible to not fall for those little fuzz butts.
