My first day in the forum! I have recently acquired two pet "back yard chickens", we live in the "city-fied" country so we have a little acreage but have a fenced immediate - backyard; chickens have free range to the whole area including on and under our back deck. I have read in several places that if you live in a cold climate not to provide heat as they adapt to their climate. BUT! and here is my question - I live in the southeast (Alabama) where days in the Fall are around 60 degrees but can fall to freezing or below for a while at night. With these ranging temperatures, what should I provide for them at night, if anything??? HELP!!
