I am wondering how to keep my chickens warm for the winter.
They have a big coop; too big for the 8 I have. 4 silkies and 4 coachins.
They are dry in the coop, but I checked on them today at night and the coop is cold. They seem to be fine, but its not "warm or hot" in the coop. The coop is dry and cold. Is this ok?
The regular size cochins seem ok, but the silkies seemed cold. I dont want to loose any of my chickens.
The silkies are hard and expensive to replace. I waited a full year for a quality show white female silkie.
To me silkies are cute, but fragile.
Can you guys help me?
I heard to feed corn and if so what kind?
Should I put some straw in the coop?
The coop is insulated. I live in CO.
