    So we have a small coop and the girls always come out of it. So i got a free desk from our local library and made a huddle box for where the girls can huddle together and escape the winds we have up here. My question is, would someone recommend a heat mat i can put in it? We have no heat lamps but i do want something during the day bc we get 80mph+ winds and cold temps. Since this isn't enclosed fully i want to make it a bit warmer. I looked on Amazon, Shop the Coop, etc and couldn't find something fantastic. We have 5 winter hardy hens.
    Please don't tell me how i don't need a mat, if you can't assist in a positive manner please do not respond!!!!

    Thanks
