We've been having really nice weather; 5C in the day and -12C at night. We usually have drier air...right now our humidity is in the high 80's. So it's gorgeous, but very frosty. Our chickens try to run me over to get out the door in the morning.
We were away two nights ago and apparently I missed a 5 month old pullet and rooster when I closed the coop up for night. They'd been hiding under a piece of plywood that was propped up against the coop and I didn't see them in the dark. There was a breeze that night. I felt so bad when I saw them in their run in the morning. But they're totally fine.
We were away the next night and I our son made sure the chickens were in the coop. I double checked the run when we got home. This morning that same rooster is running around outside the run. And he's still fine. I specifically put him in tonight.
I'm curious to see how they make out when it's -35C. I've been reading on here about not heating the coop, and having proper ventilation.So far I've been beyond pleased with how hardy our chickens have been.
