Hi everyone! My name is Torre. We have settled into our new home and have started thinking about some laying hens. I'm totally green and would love some direction on where to start! We are in Gardner, MA. Obviously we need cold hardy chickens! I know our city has no ordinances against chickens and the Farming Act in MA technically gives me the right to have hens, is it advisable to call the city and verify, first? We are thinking 4-5 hens. What types are best for the cold weather? Thanks so much for reading! happy to be here!
