    Where you are located is very important. Generally, providing birds a dry place to stand and protection from wind, especially northerly is ideal. Making so they are exposed to warming rays of sun can also help, especially when temperatures are really cold. Good nutrition and water.

    Show a picture of setup including it orientation relative to windbreaks and compass.

    Because the answers would be totally different if you were at the Equator

    Generally though, you don't need to do ANYTHING except give them a dry , draft-free coop, an dplenty of food
