Hi, this is my first post here. I just ordered the Ornamental Layer Collection for delivery in February. Anyone else ordered this special? I imagine that will get them ready for our laying season here in October... if they survive the brutal summer. Can't wait to see which breeds I get... and all females.!!

They should survive the summer. Provide plenty of accessible water and shade. I have numerous citrus in the yard. My birds (leghorns, rhode island reds, austrolorps, anconas, amerucanas, & black stars) take short forays and then lounge under the trees to cool off. My were all laying by 6 months. I am thinking you will see eggs by August. Good luck!

The weather here doesn't seem to bother the too much. Give them a shady spot and some loose dirt they can lay in and there fine. Mine have lived outside for 5 years now and never have been affected health wise by the weather winter or summer. Egg laying slows down a lot in the winter
