    Rooster picks on only one hen

    No she stopped laying. So I found a lovely new home for Lafawnduh the roo that was picking on Mildred. Funny thing is though when I put Mildred back in the coop I had the kennel in there without the door on, Mildred likes the kennel . . .I suppose after being a house chicken for 5 weeks she has...

    Comment by 'PrincessTamTam' in article 'Chicken Coop Ventilation - Go Out There And Cut More Holes In Your Coop!'

    Ventilation is important however when the article mentions that the temp might dip a bit low on a night now or then. . .we have -45 temps (yes it is the same in C and F when you get that low) for days on end, weeks on end so it is unrealistic to keep the windows open. I clean poop every morning...

    We get as low as -45C here which pretty much is the same in Fahrenheit. I do have a red light in my well ventilated well insulated coop and the coldest it got in the coop last year was -8C which is 17F. I think I might back off a bit this year (we learn as we go along right?). Tonight it is only...

    Water heater

    We built two water heaters out of old cookie tins. Drill a hole in the side, run the wire through, attache the hardware and screw in the lightbulb. The tin itself rests in a wooden box and the waterer sits onto of the tin lid. It works great and we made two for each of our 7 gallon waterers.

    Yes that would be a house chicken casually walking around my living room. Just don't tell the neighbours, they think I am crazy enough already.

    I have a 12x10 coop, well insulted and 4 triple pane windows for our friged -45C winters. The run is 12x12x14 and the fencing is 1 inch welded square 16 gauge wire on all sides and ceiling.
