Hey guys, I am 562 posts behind . I've been so busy with college, ugh.
But I do have some important questions for you guys, and I hope you will help me out!
I stuck my hand in the coop this morning before the chicks left and it was not warmer than outside!! Oh no!
1. Would it be a good idea to take an old comforter and cut it up and use it as insulation for the inside of the coop?
2. We have a window that is about 1ft x 1 ft (actual size may be more). I don't want to cover it up because all I have been reading is about how important ventilation is. BUT I do want to do something so that there is no direct wind getting on the birds, because they roost pretty level with the window. Ideas? I was thinking kind of like a slanted wood thing... I cannot describe it.
3. They are 11 weeks now! So transitioning to clucking. However, I am hearing some raspy voices and some sneezing. Could the rasp be from 'puberty'? And do chickens get head colds in the winter?
