I am in Illinois
Must be by the lakes? I didn't know it got 40 below in IL?
And, honestly, I am east of IL and the coop did fine for me this winter. I added plastic to the run under the coop area to give them more protection from snow and wind. It als sits next to a building so was shielded on one side. I am searching for more options though as I am expanding chicken math and all.
It used to happen more often. The winters have been changing the last few years. Less snow and only a few really cold days. With my luck it will swing back the other way now that I have chickens.
Ok, I live in he northern most area of the US...
I dont hadve ducks, but we have a pecking problem.
What breeds of chickens do you have?
I have found that some breeds really need more elbow room than others.
And how cold does it get in the winter? And do you get a lot of snow? These two things can keep them inside for days on end if it's too much.
This can be caused by over crowding.
yeah, thats why we need more room... I have two ee's and 2 rir's.
That's a new product from precision pets and one of the best prefabs out there. I'd turn the whole thing into a coop under that nice roof, then build a big run.
Double the sqft for cold, snowy climates.
Here's RR artcile:
Seriously, just put your location in your profile.
Something like 'Northern Minnesota'...
... we don't need your address or even the town you live in.
It's easy to do and then it's always there!
