In the Brooder
- Aug 14, 2013
By the time winter comes to us in eastern NC my hens will be fully feathered but I was wondering will I still need to have a light on in the coop at night as a source of heat or will they be ok without a heat source? Also on the rare occasion we do get snow....sometimes even a lot of snow although that is extremely rare...what do I need to do for them on those occasions? Will they be okay scratching around in a snow covered yard or will I need to keep them in their coop or shovel the snow?
