You will have winter now. Probably chilly by now in fact. Not as much snow as we get here though. Good luck on getting chickens. Make sure you don't hear sniffling, or coughing coming from the chickens. And kind of take a look around at the place you are getting them from. Look clean? Don't want to take home sick chickens. I have done that in my past, my very beginning of owning chickens past. Good luck, and have fun. Come back here and have fun making friends. It's a great forum!
