I need some advice here:: I'm getting itchy to plunge into chicks. My plan was to research and then build a coop and run to be ready for growing chicks next year. I think I can get a coop and run built by the end of July. That would mean getting early June chicks. I'm in central west Missouri so our winters can occasionally be really cold but mostly they aren't too bad except the wind and week or so here and there with bitter weather. Garden people zone 6 and I'm in a pocket that is 7 some years. Would those chicks be ready for winter as we usually don't get very much cold until December. I will be protecting the coop and run with straw bales to block the wind on the west and north sides. There will be no power available. I'm also trying to find where to purchase late chicks without driving to Springfield, about 4 hours south. I only want 3 so ordering them would be way under the minimums of most.
