    Hi! I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place, but whatever..lol I wanted to figured this out before winter comes. In the fall and winter (I'm not so worried about fall) how easily do bantams get cold? And I have a feather footed dark brahma bantam. Because she has feathers on her feet does that make it easier to get frost bite on her feet? Is there something I should know about snow and chickens? This is my first year raising chickens. Thanks.

    Quote:How cold is "too" cold? And will there feathered feet be okay? Or will the snow make them wet and cold all the time. I mean will the snow frost bite them? Thanks.
