    Hi. We’ve had two Jersey Giants for about 9 months. Both good layers and very entertaining. I’m a little nervous about the winter. Hopefully they are hardy Jersey Girls!

    I'm in Wyoming and we've had plenty of winter weather already (today we're at 9*). So far, so good with the flock! Having a heated waterer is helpful and as long as your birds have a well-ventilated draft-free coop, they should be fine.

    Thanks for joining us!

    Glad you're here JerzeyChick!

    If you haven't yet, please make your chickens a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise.
    It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. It's more probable that your chickens would get frostbite from improper ventilation than the cold temperatures.

    If you are from New Jersey, nothing to worry about if your coop is dry, well ventilated and your birds have access to adequate feed and water. Welcome to BYC.
