How cold is too cold for chickens?
Gosh, these cold snaps just keep repeating! We only have 2 chickens (which share the 6X6 with 4 ducks - no food or H20 inside at night by the way). NOt worried about the ducks, but am about the "buffies". Not because they're acting unusual or lost appetite, but baby, it's cold outside! Given we have only the two, how low is too low for them?
We'll add some more insulation, and a "chicken hood contraption" somehow (thanks Maggie) but then again, maybe i'm tripping, and they're just fine. Afterall, the sparrows do okay.
Hate to ask this as it has probably been ground out before. I googled and searched the forum, but couldn't find anything specific.
