    3 degrees here with windchill. amazingly, the coop is 40 degrees with just one 125 watt ceramic heat lamp. can't beat that with a stick.

    Surprisingly, It doe's go in to the teens in parts of Fl. , but I just checked the south side of the house and its 59f. so it does warm up rather quickly. I would rather deal with the few days of cold that we have, rather then the weeks of cold you have in the mid west and north. Keep your animals warm. JB

    Gosh! It's so cold everywhere. I grew up in NW Fla. I talked to one of my friend's that lives there last night and she was telling me how cold it was there. She says she has every blanket she has ever owned up on all her house windows to keep the drafts down and she is freezing.

    It's cold here to. Was 10* at 7am, but the last I checked it had warmed to 17*. I hate dealing with the frozen water. I didn't even bother putting it in the run today.....I hope the little piggies will be smart enough to go into the coop to drink. They are so spoiled with having food & water in the coop and run.

    Everyone try to stay warm,
