    I have a house I was thinking about using to add more chickens. It goes well with my Eglu. Anyway, what do you guys do for winter? We get snow here and while it's usually no lower than 20 degrees and snow of about 18" it's still snow and blowing snow.

    They do great! I had my girls in one. I just closed up the shutters on mine. Laid a piece of corrigated plastic on the inside of the gap to keep out drafts. they did fine. The air space between the walls provides insulation. Biggest problem is ventilation. I drilled 3-1 1/2 inch holes under the roof line which did the job.

    [email protected] will need to add a covered run for sure to give them some outside space when the weather is bad.
