    We just bought some Modern Game Bantams at the Ohio National. They are just wonderful! Since we live in Ohio, we're kind of concerned about the colder temps. The little chickens were shivering alot, so we put two heat lamps in the coop...a white bulb in the run and a red bulb in the coop. They seem really happy with that.

    Just wondering how some of you other BYC members care for your little bantams in the cold weather.....

    Any advice would be so greatly appreciated!

    I got a pair of moderns from Ohio too. They don't seem to be bothered by the cold any more than the rest of my flock but it only about 30-40 degrees here...
