    I am not sure if this is the right forum for this, so please correct me if it belongs somewhere else ("coops"? perhaps, or "Managing your flock"?)

    I live in Minnesota and have 2 SL Sebrights. I have an insulated coop that I believe is dry and draft-free. My other 8 hens are "cold hearty" breeds, so I am confidant they will handle our winter just fine. But I have read that SLS's are not cold hearty. So....what does this mean exactly? What kind of special considerations do I need to make for them. I have a heater in the coop that I only planned on using for the extremely cold times (well below zero). But perhaps I will need to use it more than i thought?

    I'm in MI and my G Sebright is doing just fine. Of course he has many other big chickens to snuggle with at night [​IMG]
