    Hi, I live in New Hampshire and just got my chickens this past spring. They are Black Auastrolorps, and I have four of them. I chose these because of the cold hardiness but was still wondering how to keep them warm in winter. They are housed in a 10 foot by 5 foot chicken tractor that we move around every couple of days. Once the snow comes I have to put them in one place for the winter and need ideas as how to set them up. Thanks for any ideas you may have....Lisa
