she has been indoors in a laundry basket on a dog bed warmer for 20 hours
I had that happen to a RIR mutt this year who escaped and couldn't get back in the pen and got frost all over her... I should of done what you did. She didn't recover and died last week... I would keep her inside and give her pro and prebiotics. Vegetables and anything else that is high in vitamins and minerals.
I've had three roosters outside all year round for years without any issues.
Yes I bought some antibiotics and am treating her now, for diarrhea. no of serious frostbite thankfully
Wow she responded nicely to the antibiotics and has recovered nicely.
One of my buffs fell asleep on a roost outside one night, its covered so I didnt see her when I locked up, got down to 10, she was fine, no issues. Just depends on the birds I guess.
night before last it was -10F when I got up at 5am... my flock was in their coop in the barn. While it it is always warmer in there than the outside air temp, I doubt it was much above zero in the coop. my 8 birds seem to handle it just fine. it might be because I will toss in a couple ears of feed corn when I check them around dinnertime. they really seem to like those..
