Greetings to all my new friends here at BYC! My family is finally living somewhere with some land, and we are planning are turning my long time wish for chickens into reality! I fell in love with them years ago at my boyfriends family's home, and have had a soft spot ever since. Of course I am brimming with questions, though all the information on BYC that I have foun so far has been very VERY helpful! I have just thought of one thing tho that I am not quite clear on, and maybe it is kinda "duh", but what kind of cold weather is really considered cold (and hot as well) for chickens? We are planning on 3-4 standards of something hardy, perhaps RIR, but not sure yet... Thanks!
