It is currently 19 degrees F outside, and the temp will be dropping all day. It is expected to go down to -2. My question is in this extreme cold should I let my chickens in the run or would they be best kept in the coop? It is windy out, and while the run is covered in plastic it has rained the past 3 days so it is pretty moist in the run. They are 1st year chickens and this is my 1st experience with them in extreme cold temps. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Obviously I'd bring their water and food into the coop and will be checking on making sure they don't have frozen water as the day goes on. And no, there is no electricity to the run or coop. Thank you!
