    Well winter is here and so the snow and cold weather! YUK! Anyhow I'd like to know what you think about this subject. Can myCB handle the cold if they are in a nice enclosed chicken coop with hay for bedding, plus there are lots of little bodies to snuggle together. It used to be our milkhouse & I think that it being a milkhouse it has some extra insulation. It is supposed to be about starting with -1 down to a one night of -8. The youngest are about 4 months. Thoughts Please, and TIA!
