I never have. I probably wouldn't even think about it until it was in the negative digits. And then, if it did - I have 100+ chickens, so I'm not even sure how I would get it done in a reasonable amount of timewhile doing all of the regular really cold weather chores (extra feedings, watering, etc). It's gotten pretty cold here before (teens w/bad wind chill, single digits) and everyone has always been fine.
