Hi! I am brand new to this site. I have 6 chickens-2 RIR, 2 Leghorns and 2 Sexlink. They have been laying well and everything has been ok. I can't reconcile myself to the fact that they are outside in the cold. Oh sure they are in a nice little coop, completely enclosed. But it's supposed to get to around 0 degrees tonight. I put a light in the coop when the time changed so they would keep on laying and they have. The other day I put a 60watt bulb in it and it does throw off a little heat. They don't want to go outside since it snowed but before that they were free ranging everywhere. I got a feeling it's gonna be a long winter! They can't possibly stay in that coop all winter? Oh BTW I'm in southern Maine. I guess my question really is can my chickens really make it through a Maine winter in an essentially nonheated coop?
