They have roosts - a high roost and a low roost that they sleep on all huddled up, the nest boxes are just an extra, warmer last resort is all I was saying. : P And that sounds good! We have one long ventilation strip that will remain uncovered.

They'll be fine...first year is steep learning curve.

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."

Don't want the seniors using up their energy trying to keep warm and losing weight though, so they do, usually only cold and wet though. No silly light sheets or anything here, lol.
My horse made it to 30, I put her down three years ago, so nice to hear you're taking good care of the old ones, I was told many times by the farrier to sell her for meat, I finally stopped calling that guy. I still miss her dearly, helped her both in and out of this world.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
