I did use salt, but minimal amount.  And totally agree with raising my special gals without intervention with nature's intent.

I don't know either, but so many folks reported poor laying in the winter that I was shocked that it made little difference for my gals.   Hope you have the same experience :)

It's about length of day/night, not temperature or snow, for winter laying.

First year birds will often lay thru their first winter but after that not so much.

Whether or not to use winter lighting depends your long term goals in chicken keeping.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
