    So, I live in Wisconsin, and anyone who knows of this state knows it can get colder than a tin toilet seat on the shady side of an iceberg. So I was thinking of some toys to keep them up and moving despite the cold. I do have a heat lamp in there. What other ways can I keep them warm? My coop is connected to my garage and is basically has metal on the inside and outside with concrete in the middle. And also, how can I stop their water from freezing? I am not home for 10 hours out of the day because of school so I can't keep going out there to make sure that it is not iced over. Because here in the lovely state of Wisconsin where the flame on a candle freezes, water freezes fast... like really fast. Thank you
