How do you all winterize your coops?  I live in McMinnville and there are only a few times we get some freezing temperatures.  I have a small coop, had to re-home too cockerals so I'm down to 3 Silkies who just started laying eggs this month :weee

Hey, everyone I am in grants pass, oregon. I am starting my bantam project and am going with bantam Wyandottes. Just asking around to see if anyone has any close to me

We put up plastic at the vent holes in the coop. Each hen produces 10 watts of heat that helps them out, not sure if that is all breeds or not, I would hope it would be. At the bottom of the door was a gap so we just stuck a blanket down to block out the cold/wind.

Up at the top of the coop the air vents where left open. So far this has helped, this will be their third fall/winter for seven of the ten.

What colors of bantam wyandottes do you have meowoui. I sometimes head up that way since my aunt lives in Portland.

All I know is she is a buff color not real sure what Bantam she is or if she is just a Brahma.

Brahmas will have feathered feet, pea comb and black in the tail. Wyandotte's are clean legged and have a rose comb.

OK she is not a Wyandotte, nor a Brahma she has feathers on her feet but a regular comb which has always flopped over. Guess she is a mix
