I was at the co-op today and will pick up chicks May 16. They will phone me the day before to let me know what is coming to the store and when to arrive to get them. These are innoculated birds and one of the varieties will be Red Star/Red Comet. We have harsh winters, though the coop is insulated and we can hang heat lamps over the roosts. Do any of you in similar climates have these birds- what is your general impression of them? I ask because there may be other varieties in the order, but I know for sure I can get these. Thanks!
