I'm in central Oregon as well, northeast of Madras a ways. What do you do for extreme temps for your chicks. Ours are only 5 weeks old, so we haven't had any issues yet, but I'm wondering what to do in the summer when it's 114, or in the winter when it's 3 degrees. Any ideas? FYI: I have 10 chickens in a 9x6 coop with 6 ft gabled metal roof. It has a 12" tall band of hardware cloth running along the tops of the two 9' walls for ventilation (so 18 sqft venitilated area). The coop is out in the open with no shade, because shade doesn't really exist here. I would post a picture, but I don't have enough posts yet.
