I thought it might be nice to start a thread about how to get your flock ready for winter. Just post your ideas on how best to keep your flock warm in winter etc. Here is my plan: I plan on tarping up all my coops/hutches to keep the drafts out, and of course I'll hang heat-lamps in each pen. I am trying to decide how best to keep their water un-frozen. I guess I either need to hang a lamp over the waterer or get one of those "Heating Thingy's" for waterers you can buy! Post all your ideas here! When you post your ideas please say which state you're from.
