    We had a few (I'm in PA--we can get into the negative twenties, and I don't use heat) and they didn't do badly at all. Make sure you get them early so that their combs mature and have good blood flow before winter sets in, otherwise, you have an increased risk of frostbite.

    Ventilation helps remove moisture from the air in the coop. Moisture makes frostbite, so be sure your coop is well ventilated...

    And Welcome to BYC!
