I live in the Rockies and want to raise egg layers. Is that so crazy?? I have info on good cold weather breeds, but I am hoping to actually hear from some one that has been successful at getting eggs and keeping your flock happy! When I ask around here I get the strangest looks! I have checked my teeth in the mirror incase lunch hung around longer than I thought! Do I open the coop and let them out in the winter? Do they have enough common sense to know when to stay in? Things like that I have no idea about, darn it and I really want home grown eggs! Help Me Pleeaassee!!
