    My engine starts without choking. Is this a problem? Does it mean my fuel mix is too rich?

    just very slightly too rich.
    but it's ok. I'm always in too much of a hurry to warm up my engine so I enrichen the idle mixture so that on hot days it will start without the choke.

    without snow on the ground, these will often start with no choke - just takes maybe 10 extra feet of pedaling

    the plug color shows the mixture at full throttle only, not at idle
