    Quote:Even if it was only 10 F, that's still not too cold for chickens. Actually, in Minnesota here, I would think 50 would be too warm for them. Do you let them outside at all? I know my chickens HATE snow, but they will sometimes still go out where I shovel the snow away. I have oeg bantams. My coop is not heated and they are just fine as long as I put vaseline on combs and wattles.
