This past spring I raised and added 8 "pullets" to my year old flock of 5 (rooster and 4 hens) for a flock total of 13. Since then two of the pullets turned out to be roosters and two pullets were killed by the neighbor's dog. I now have 7 hens and 2 roosters and 1 rooster went next door. I want to raise 6 more chicks this fall but my husband says it will be too cold for them, etc. and to wait until spring. In your experience, what are the differences between raising chicks in the spring and fall? Thanks for you answers!
