    This is my first year with chickens. I have 7 Americana and a rooster. My coop is wrapped in plastic. But im worried they are too cold. Its 25 degrees in my coop. Ive read different things one says they should be ok in the cold and the other says they won't. I have straw in there and one heat lamp. My coop is 8ftx8ft. Please help!

    They will be fine...you spoil them with the heat lamp. My it is under 20 at night here, and mine are fine without a heat lamp :)
