In the Brooder
- Apr 9, 2015
I have 8 hens and the past week it Has been -20 or colder I am wondering what extras I should feed them and or how y'all take care of your chickens when it gets this cold?
It is getting cold here too, haven't reached the -20 yet, but I'm sure it will get here eventually. I don't do too much different than I do on warmer days, I need to replace the water more, I give mine a warm ration and oatmeal mixture, I throw out scratch to get them moving, put down grassy hay for them to pick through and get some more scratch in them before bedtime as well as a bit of warm water. They also will seek out any sunshine.
