Some More Chicken Questions... About Winter This Time
Calling all chicken mamas! I have been doing some research on preparing my coop and "flock" (I say it like that because there are only 3 hens) for winter. Our coop is small, and has a large south facing window and north facing door (small) for the girls to get in and out of. We plan on insulating the coop before winter comes, but it gets really cold out there! What have you found is the best way to heat the coop? Incandescent bulbs? A red heat lamp? All the websites say different things, so I wanted to see if I could get some tried and true opinions. As far as the water goes, I am pretty sure I want to get this waterer that simply plugs into an extension cord and heats up. It even has temp control. Pretty sweet.
Thanks for your help everyone!
And a small side note, Blanche laid an egg today! A real one, with a shell and everything! I am so proud of her!
