This is our first winter having chickens and we have a few questions about caring for our three girls during the winter. #1: We have heard that some chicken's egg production can stop during the winter. We have one Buff Orpington and two Easter eggers. We understand that our BO could lay through the winter ( is that true?) but we are unsure if our EE's can also lay through the winter. Any ideas? #2: Our chickens are well protected from the elements and we have a heat lamp up in the coop but they still spend most of their time in the run (even sleeping down there). We want to know if we need to provide heat in the run or anything else we must do to keep them warm throughout the winter. Thanks so much for your help!!!
