    Aloha,

    I do not usually set during the cold months only because I would rather it be warmer for the chicks and hen. But one suggestion is to have a heating lamp for the chicks incase they need that extra boost of heat. A friend of mine said that broiler starter helps too. But I have found some past post from other people on her that you can look at just to help you out. Hope these help..
