I have only IB mature peafowl who are going through their fourth winter here in Northern New York. They all seem to be doing fine as their house is large with two feet of straw on the floor. They are closed in at night but have access to large pens during the day. Our winters are always cold but last year and this year have been brutal with the snow, cold and winds. I have never considered supplemental heat due to the fire danger and the fact that the pea house is in close proximity to other poultry houses and livestock housing and thus a fire could be devastating. With that in mind I thought that if there came a time that I felt supplemental heat was required I could use ome advise from those on here who use it. I am wondering what type of heat do you use, where do you place it ie: suspended from ceiling or secured on the walls and what form of protection you use to keep the bedding or tail feathers from catching on fire. Thank you in advance for any replies. FC.
