Cold Weather Poultry Housing and Care

thanks for taking the time to write, and post this.
Excellent article. Thanks for taking the time to include so much detailed info on keeping the girls safe and comfortable.
This article is very informative. 👍
Wonderful. Currently building a coop for my girls. Wisconsin comes with its own set of challenges. This article gave me a lot of great ideas and insight. Well written. Thank you so much.
Excellent article filled with useful information. And - I copied your door idea when I built my run. The blocking board in front of the coop door just feels like it adds so much more security.
I'll save a link to this article to share on the forum. Practical realistic experience in truly cold weather.
This should be required reading for anyone even thinking about keeping poultry. It's comprehensive & easily understood.
Thankfully I don't have to deal with these temperatures.
There is a great deal of REALLY good information here. If I could figure out how to bookmark an article, this would be near the top of my list!
Very well thought out and well-written article.

Beautiful pics and tons of great info!! I'm just glad we don't get quite as cold, nor as much snow as you do. Looks like you have made the most of the challenge!
