    Ok, as a first timer, I'm über worried about my babies!! Granted they are not babies they are basically 8-9 months old... BUT this will be the longest winter of my lifetime!!! I'm afraid to put a heat lamp in my coop, but I'm afraid not to!! It's supposed to be below zero this week and I worry worry worry!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAH!! I never would have imagined that these feathered babies would cause me so much love and concern!!!

    If you haven't had heat on them...they'll be fine! It was below zero here and my chickens were fine, even the leghorns and gold stars. (A less cold hardy breed.)
