What's The Best Barn Heater For Poultry?
We've moved to northern Nevada and have carted our 38 chickens along with us. We are now house hunting, and since it gets cold enough here for snow for months at a time (elevation about 4750 feet) I'm thinking these southern California birds are gonna be in for a bit of a shock this winter!
Anyone have any advice or recommendations as far as barn heaters? I'm going to get a small one to help the chickens out in their coop this winter...all I know is to get one that shuts off automatically if it tips over, beyond that our choices seem to be electric, propane or natural gas. Infrared?
