Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cold Hardy! I bought this breed 7 months ago and have been very impressed with the amount of eggs I have gotten along with how cold hardy the chickens are. This winter it got down into the negative teens and the chickens would still go outside and lay eggs daily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had trouble getting them to eat and drink I have purchased other chicks from tractor supply with no problem, however, these chicks didn't look so great and when I dipped their beaks in the food and water they didn't want to drink or eat. I persisted but 3 chicks still died.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Health beautiful chicks I received my chicks a week and a half ago. We got 10 speckled Sussex and 10 Wyandotte. All 20 chicks arrived alive and well. So far we haven't lost any. Everyone looks healthy and have beautiful markings. Some of their adult feather are just starting to come in and they look great. I am very happy with all of the chicks!

do pullets need heat lamp if the temperature is above 60

Asked by: dorsel
Babies that are under 9 weeks old should always be at least 90 degrees until they are fully feathered. At that time, pullets should have ambient heat at the floor of 70-75 degrees. some of this will come from their own body heat. The best thing to do is have a thermometer where they live and make sure they are covered to avoid wind or freezing type elements.
