Atlanta's last frost date is the same as ours. Interesting.

Last spring frost date for Atlanta is April 15th. We're about a week + behind, being up over 1300 feet. Most of my spring chicks have produced by September. I've never had them not. Until last year, I'd been getting them in April, usually early April.

I may get a few more from the feed store in a couple of weeks. Or not. I'm not sure where I'd put them when they were out of the brooder. Both of our big coops are occupied. Still, it's nice to have winter eggs.

Here in So Cal we are well into spring. We haven't quite had last frost
yet but baby chicks won't need heroic measures to keep them warm.
I like buying baby chicks at the end of summer myself, it's warm enough to keep them without heat lamps while they're little, then they grow all winter and start laying in spring. The years we bought spring chicks we
never got eggs until the next year.
