Warming chickens and hoarse rooster questions
I'm a California newbie chicken lover/owner. Our temps never go below 17F generally. I worry that my chickens should be warmed by a heater when it gets 32F and under. My husband says I'm crazy. They are kept in a 6 foot square shed with shavings and nesting boxes. I have a total of 10.
Also, my one rooster is sounding hoarse the last couple of days when he crows. Is this normal? He is 1 year old and seems in good health.
