I'm interested in finding out what other poultry hobbyists are doing that deal with extreme cold (below zero) winters? I'm not referring to a "dip" late at night to below zero. I'm talking about the arctic blast that stays for days, sorta COLD! I deal with FROZEN heated dog dishes that formerly had drinking water! Its 'thawed' slush at the bottom, IF the chickens can break through the two inches of ice build up that happens each day. I'm talking frozen eggs within a short time of laying if the heat lamp isn't almost ON the eggs! So I'm really interested in what people are doing to cope with this sort of cold. How are you feeding? What are you feeding? Especially those feeding their own feed mixes, and not the commercial mix of unknown recipe. I'm considering raising meal worms and crickets and soldier fly larvae in summers, but how to I "preserve" that harvest so I can feed the protein in winter? Bugs don't live in winter in these temps! And they can't live in my house either since my home isn't warm enough either!
