    Ok, I know this is two posts in quick succession, but they are such different topics, I thought I'd go with two posts. [​IMG]

    Those of you with A frame tractors - how do they do in the winters? We live in South Western PA and don't often have bitter cold winters but we often have temps around the teens and twenties. We have had occasional deep snow as well. What do you A-framers do in the winter?

    Do your coops stay in one spot or do you continue to move them?

    What do you add as far as greens for the chicks?

    How do the tractors or A-Frames fare as far as heat goes? Should we plan to add heat or cover the sides of the run portion?

    Thanks so much!!
