I'm usually behind on winterizing, so my example is not the best, but I don't even think about it until temps are consistently 50's or lower during the day. Usually when the first really cold wind is predicted, then I get the tarps up.I planted garlics during the weekend. And ordered clear tarps to wrap my coop and run. Is it still too early to winterize the coop and run? Day is short now, and only two of our chickens are laying. Sun was broken from her broodiness very quickly, because my son was always happy to take her out of nexting box and carried her around. Poor girl gave up in few days and becomes our most reliable layer again.
