    It's supposed to be in the 20s tonight and just to give my parents peace of mind I'm willing to put a heater in the coop. The only bedding in the coop is in the nesting boxes. I'm not sure if our 7 hens need it though. Our cochin goes on the bottom roost, a leghorn and EE on the middle roost and 4 leghorns on the top roost so they're not really bundled together. Heater or no?

    Thanks! I just went out to the coop to check on them and I stuck my head and hand in and it felt better than it does outside. No wind or anything.
