We live in usda zone 3 where it is currently -7C. It will get down to -40 in February. I am already having a lot of eggs freeze and crack. Any suggestions on how to prevent freezing without heating the whole hen house (I only have 18 chickens)? Are there any considerations I should be aware of when using or storing previously frozen eggs?

Can you run electricity out to the coop? A heating element in the nest box (i.e. a seed sprouting pad) might keep the nest bottom warm enough to prevent freezing.
