Hi everyone! This will be our first winter with the chickens, we live in upstate NY/finger lakes region so we usually get pummeled with snow! Trying to figure out what is the best way to keep the chickens over winter, we don't use the layer method of composting straw, we have a livestock sand bedding in the coop and run. I'm really nervous about heat lamps, any other ideas? Here is our coop and run. We are thinking about adding a metal or plastic roof to the top of the run and maybe some plastic sheeting around it do to keep the snow out, the coop itself just has cedar shake siding and plywood. Don't mind the half stained siding! Lol on my list of things to do!
