Okay, I'm in New Hampshire and right now it's minus -12 where I am. They say it might go down to 20 below, and in "some areas" even -30, which would be record breaking. This is my first winter with the chickens, and I'm so nervous. I just went out to check on them and brought them a milk jug of hot water in case they want to cuddle around it. I do not have a heat lamp out there. I've read so much controversy about them, being fire hazards, getting the chickens natural temperature messed up once it's taken away, etc., so I haven't put one out there (it never gets THIS cold). So I am just wondering if there is any advice. Trying to set up a heat lamp in this temp and dark would be difficult, if not dangerous as their coop is small. Will they cuddle and be okay? I even considered bringing them in (8 of them) and putting them in my bathroom, but I imagine that would be a DISASTER by morning. Plus, I have a mean Roo who would probably beat the heck out of me. I know this is not the proper section for this question, but figured at this hour more people might be lingering here. Any advice would be appreciated. BTW, they are mostly Bantam Silkies, plus a Bantam Cochin, a large RIR, and a TINY Mille Fleur D'Uccle. I'm most worried about her, since she is so tiny. Maybe I should just bring her in?? I don't know what to do!!
