In the Brooder
- Oct 27, 2011
I am in NY state and the weather has just turned bitter. This is my first winter with chickens and I was planning on heating the coop with a thermoblack outlet and a heat lamp. the block kicks on at 35 and off at 45. I am reading posts everywhere that they dont need heat but I would like to give them something to keep them in the late 30's and I am also reading that heat lamps could cause fires. SO if any any one has any safe suggestions of how to heat my coop that would be much appriciated.
