    We're in MN so we get extreme winters, -20 at times and we can have very hot winters over 100 with high humidity. It says in my hatchery catalog that they are cold tolerant. Would they do well her in MN?

    Same here. When all of the other ones (RIR, Wyandottes) don't bother coming out, they are usually out pecking in the snow.

    Mine do better in the cold than in the heat of the summer.
