    Hi. New to having backyard chickens. We are going to experience
    A hard freeze (temps in their 20s for a couple hours) tomorrow night. Anything. We need/should/could do to keep our 6 chickens happy?

    They will be fine. .... Just make sure they have plenty of ventilation.

    I'm in the same boat...they said we're supposed to have a low of 18 degrees tomorrow night here in Jacksonville. Our coop is tucked behind the house so it's directly out of the wind and weather, so I'm not sure if there's much else extra I can do.
