I am hoping that you can help me with a few questions.... I have been reading a lot about them online... but I'm getting mixed feelings about how to go about this... I currently am incubating Silkies, Seramas, Marans, and EE Can I house Serama chickens with these other breeds in my barn? Some have noted not having any problems with them in a mixed flock.. just to make sure that food and water is accessible. Do I have to bring them indoors ( my house) rather then letting them roost out in the barn with the other chickens in the winter? Again- Some have said they HAVE to be inside under 50 degrees... while I read that some have raised them in the New England cold Weather ( where I live) and they do fine.. just cuddle up with the other chickens. Any advise would be great! One more question regarding incubating..... When I candled them I saw Veins and a black spot..on day 7... but it was on the pointy end of the egg.... does it matter where the black spot and veins are developing??? First time doing this...if it wasn't already obvious!
