Are you worried about your flock for the cold weather that is upon us? Don’t fret! By doing a few things, your chickens will be fine. Remember…chickens are birds, not mammals.
- Chickens have survived winter weather for many many years (before electricity – heated coops and water heaters were not heard of).
- Chickens huddle together to stay warm. I have peaked in on our ladies at night – they are always on the top roost, and are always snuggled close to each other. This is their natural instinct to stay warm.
- For birds of the air, we put feed in bird feeders and water in bird baths. We don’t give them a heated bird house or heated water.
