    Also make sure your coop has no draughts at night for the wind to blow through.... I have a little bantie that gets a cold every winter... until last year, when I made sure every nook and cranny of little holes where the wind could blow through (it howls through here in the winter ) where packed.. also I use feed bag to close out any draughts in the door.... worked a treat no more colds for my little girlie

    Thank you all for your fedback the chooks are in a brand new coop which until they are bigger maybe a little large for them and they are not snuggling together at night so now i wait for them to go to sleep and physically movethem together! i think that is why they are cold and the weather has really changes recently I have also put a taupauline ove one side of the coop run so they have shelter from the wind i already have it over the top to shelter them from the rain! They have really picked up scince adding baytrill to the water. [​IMG][​IMG]:)jodie33 xx
